The attractive young ladv pictured 
on the cover this month is Miss 
Betty Bond, of Chew Chase, Md., 
who was named "Miss Maryland" 
in the 1942 Terrapin, student annual. 

Miss Bond is a sophomore, and a 
member of the College of Arts and 
Sciences and Kappa Kappa Gamma 

She was chosen for the honor of 
being "Miss Maryland" by John 
Robert Powers, head of the famous 
Powers Model Agencv of New 
York and one of the best known con- 
noisseurs of feminine pulchritude in 
the world. 

Other coeds who formed Miss 
Bond's court were Edith Dunford 
of Riverdale; Helen Crane of Hyatts- 
ville; Mary Yeager of Hagerstown; 
Doris Thompson of Catonsville, and 
Louise Teller of Chew Chase. 


I appreciate the opportunitv to 
serve the University of Maryland 
and its Alumni in my new job as 
President of the Association. It 
seems to me that a rare opportunity' 
is presented for all of us to get down 
to work and help the Universitv in 
the most important program ever 
undertaken by an educational insti- 

What's the program? Simply 
stated it is the mammoth task of 
welding literally hundreds of young 
men into the fullest war effort. This 
involves a tremendous physical edu- 
cation program under our new di- 
rector, Clark Shaughncssv. Our boys

Alumni 2>ay Proved Enjoyable Aj^ai/i 


In spite of curtailment by war-time activities and the 

main difficulties of transportation. Alumni who at 
tended the get-together at the University on Max 30, 
voted it a thoroughly enjoyable affair and one not soon 
to be forgotten. Especial credit goes to the Class of *1~. 
which had the largest representation of any one class 
for the da) . 

Program Curtailed 

With mam Alumni in the armed service and others 
taking an active part in war activities it had been de- 
cided by leaders in the Association and at the University 
to curtail the Alumni Day program this year and hold 
it on the same day as graduation, giving the Alumni an 
opportunity to see this colorful event and to meet and 
know more of the graduates, their parents and members 
of the faculty. 

The program for the Alumni began with registration 
in the new Administration Building, which was followed 
at 9:30 by the annual meeting. This was presided over 
by First Vice-President Robert M. (Bunt) Watkins, 
'23, as President Parker was unable to attend because 
of illness. 

Following a few introductory remarks by Mr. Wat- 
kins in which he paid tribute to "the fine work of Rosev 
Pollock, Secretary of the Association, who has joined 
the armed forces and is now somewhere on the high 
seas on his way to a foreign battlefield." "Bunt" also 
praised the work of President Parker, who he announced 
is making definite recovery from a long illness. 

A report on the finances of the Alumni Association 
was made by Mr. Harvey Casbarian, Comptroller of the 
University of Maryland. 

Dean Spence Honored 

At this point Mr. Watkins announced that a tribute 
was about to be paid a deceased member of the facultv 
who had been a member of the facultv' at College Park 
for nearly 50 years and who had justly earned a place of 
love and respect in the hearts of all Alumni, the late 
Thomas Humphrey Spence. Professor Charles S. Rich- 
ardson, retired head of the Public Speaking Department, 
presented an oil portrait of Dean Spence to the Univer- 

sity in behall <>l Janus \\ St( ns and James Sw.nt/. 
members ol the Class ol I'M 1 ). 

Presenl at the unveiling ol t lie portrait wen Mi 
Spence. three daughters Miss Marj S] 
Park, Mis. 1 . ( Iraig Wilton oi Roanok< , Va., and Mi 
W. ]. Lescure oi Harrisonburg, Va.; foui grandchildren 
—Craig Wilton. Jr., Charlotte Calverl Spence Wilton. 
Thomas I lumphre) Spence W ilton, and W.J, I i 
3rd; and one son in law, E. Craig W ilton. 

[Tie portrait was unveiled by little Charlotte Calverl 
Spence Wilton and was accepted b\ Dr. II. C. Byrd, 
'08, President of the University ol Maryland, and one 
tunc student ol Dean Spence. 

Dean Spence was bom in 1867 at the Spence ancestral 
home near Snow Hill, Worcestei County, and became 
a Professor of Language at the old Maryland Agricul- 
tural College m 1892. In 1902 he was made \ ice Presi 
dent and from 1912 to 1913 he served as Acting Presi 
dent. From 1919 to 1921 he was Acting Dean of the 
College of Arts and Sciences and in 1924 was made Dean 
Emeritus of the College of Arts and Sciences. I Ic taught 
a class in Greek at the University until his death in 193". 

Dr. Byrd Accepts Picture 

In accepting the portrait Dr. Byrd lauded Dean 
Spencc's lovaltv to the University and to the line and 
inspiring influence he had upon the men and women 
who came to his classes. "In his classroom we met his 
classes but also we got something more," he said. ' \\ c 
learned a way of life and main- of his pupils went forth 
to run the fortunes of this State. 'Phis quality which he 
carried over to us in the classroom has dominated our 
lives. Never in all the years that I knew him did he ever 
refuse to help or serve others. In behalf of the University 
I want to sav to Jimmic Stevens and Jimmie Swart/, and 
to Mrs. Spence that the spirit of Dean Spence will live 
with us forever." 

The group of Alumni was also given the opportunity 
to meet and hear a word from Mr. Clark Shaughnessy, 
head football coach and director of physical education 
at the University. Mr. Shaughnessy told the Alumni that 
while the athletic program at the University is being 
shaped to produce winning teams it is also being 
planned to give everyone a chance to get into athletics. 
"In this dav of national emergency we need men and wo 
men who arc strong, healthy and rugged: and it is going 
to be my objective to develop these qualities in the youth 
of this University. The building of character and a good 
physique will be of first importance."

must be fit. tough, and alert to meet the sort of competition that 
this crazy era of war and destruction has in store for them It 
further involves the task of inculcating within the minds and 
hearts of our boys and girls the spirit to achieve in the face of 
this competition. 'The job that they do will spell success or doom 
for our democratic way of life. 

You ask the question, "What can I do?" The answer is a 
simple one. Keep your boy and girl in school, help others to 
come to Maryland, and give generously when you aie called upon. 

We are going to have an important organization meeting of 
the Alumni Directors and Officers m a very few days to shape 
the policy of our Association. President Byrd has promised to meet 
with us and acquaint us with some of the things we should do. 

By the way, between now and next month, let's have the items 
that you consder "newsy" and of the sort that will help make a 
bigger and better Alumni News. That's all for now.

section of the Alumni News. 

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 

Burlin Gets Top Prize As 66 Athletes Are Honored; 
Many Stars Lost And Others Will Go In February 

Sixh -six Old Line athletes in lacrosse, 
baseball, track, tennis and rifle shooting 
were awarded letters and prizes at an as- 
sembly on the campus on May 29. There 
were some outstanding men in the array 
who will not compete again as collegians. 

Ralph M. Burlin of Port Deposit. Md.. 
received the highest award an Old Liner 
can gain when he won the Sylvester Watch, 
annually bestowed on the man typifying 
the best in college athletics. In addition to 
distinguishing himself in the sports arena, 
Burlin also was an outstanding student in 
the College of Engineering. 

DuVall And Wharton Honored 
Mearle DuVall and Pop Wharton, the 
only three-letter men graduating, were 
honored with the Linhardt Ring and Bozie 
Berger Trophy, respectively. DuVall was 
recognized as the outstanding athlete from 
within the State, while Wharton was con- 
sidered to have contributed the most to 
baseball. Bill McGregor got the Powell 
award for the player who did the most 
for lacrosse during the year. 

Burlin, a plugger and natural athlete, 
was one of the bulwarks in the Maryland 
line the last three seasons and also a crack- 
erjack defense man in lacrosse. His selec- 
tion as the outstanding man on the sports 
scene was highly popular with fellow stu- 

It was a notable group that received 
awards from Clark Shaughnessy, who told 
his listeners they would have great respon- 
sibility in the years immediately ahead, as 
athletes always have been recognized as 
leaders. Of the group more than 50 were 
from within the State. 

Two Graduations Hurt 

Not so many of these athletes were in 
the graduating class but many will go next 
February in view of the extra semester that 
lias been added to start June 22.

* Seniors who received gold awards. 

Ulman were the only seniors on the lacrosse 
squad but Grelecki, VandenBerg and Fet- 
ters, three of the team's aces, will go out 
with the February class. 

DuVall, Wharton, Smith, Tierney and 
Hunt were the only seniors in baseball but 
some others doubtless will go in February. 

Track lost only Cronin, Condon and 
Kihn and will not be hit by the February 

Tennis lost its top players, Baugher and 
Royal, and may be further hurt by Feb- 
ruary losses. 

Maryland's rifle team, that won the na- 
tional R. O. T. C. crown and had Ulrich 
Geller on the all-America ten, also lost 
men in May and likely will be hit in 



Luther (Boots) Conrad, all-State foot- 
ball end and shot-putter and discus thrower, 
has been named colonel of the R. O. T. C. 

regiment for the next two semesters. 

Spring Athletic Teams 
Have Rough Season 

Man land Spring sports teams in la- 
crosse, baseball, track and tennis, col- 
lectively had their worst record in many 
years, winning only 1" contests, losing 22 
and tying two. 

Lacrosse set the pace with seven wins in 
ten games, the tennis team took four 
matches, lost two and deadlocked one, the 
baseball nine was able to grab only five 
victories in 18 tilts, and the tracksters cap- 
tured a lone meet, losing four and tying 

All the freshman teams, except the rack- 
eters, did well enough, with the nine being 
the only combination at College Park to 
have a clean slate for the year. It won all 
its four games in a schedule curtailed by 
rain and cancellations. 

The young Old Liners annexed four of 
five lacrosse games, broke even in four 
track meets but the netmen were drubbed 
in all five matches. 

The frosh figured in a total of 18 con- 
tests, winning 10 against 8 defeats, the 
record of the young netmen being a heavy 
blow to the average. 


Four of Maryland's football end candi- 
dates are hurdlers or high jumpers or both 
on the track team. They are Bob James, 
Tom Brandt, Tom Hagerman and Jack 
Gilmore. James runs the hurdles only, Gil- 
more sticks to high jumping, but Brandt 
and Hagerman are oncoming sophs who 
do both. 



Maryland's lacrosse team, missing the 
national collegiate title or runner-up spot 
for the first time in years, set a season's 
scoring record of 108 goals. On the other 
hand, the defense was not up to par as 44 
markers were vielded. 

Shaughnessy Impresses; 
Grid Uplift Expected 

Chirk Shaughnessy, former Stanford 
mentor and modernizer of the "1", is 
expected to bring about a considerable up 

lift in the grid game al College l';irk next 
call, but those in the know are expecting 
no such "miracles" as he performed with 
the Indians. 

Shaughnessy has not let out as much 
as a whimper about his material but ever) 
one knows it is far from being ot Stanford 
caliber. In fact, lie's enthusiastic over the 
wav the boys responded in the Spnng dulls. 

Shaughnessy has made it verj evident to 
all those who have watched him in his 
work, that he not only is a topnotch coach 
but is an organizer and leader who will 
get 100 percent from his men. Of course, 
he's not up against anything like as tough 
a schedule as he faced on the Pacific Coast 
and it appears a cinch that he will win a 
great majority of his nine college games. 

Insists On Alert Players 

Physical fitness, speed, alertness, and 
quick thinking are Shaughnessy 's by-words, 
on and off the gridiron, and he'll need 
these qualities in his football squad next 
Fall as the Old Liners will be none too 
strong on poundage. Out of the 2" men 
who'll have to earn- the big burden, he has 
just 10 who scale over 190, but there does 
appear to be better than average speed in 
the array. 

Shaughnessy had the squad on the field 
just 23 days in Spring practice but coaches 
who saw them in the latter stages of the 
workouts, including Frank Leahy of Notre 
Dame, who is adopting the " T," marveled 
at the progress the Old Liners had made in 
that short time. 

Impress In Double Header 

For the benefit of the Alumni and others 
who were on hand for Commencement on 
May 30, Shaughnessy staged an intrasquad 
double-header to wind up the Spring ses- 
sion. Seven teams played, the 4-4 leading 
players divided, opposed in one game, and 
the others, labeled Commandos by Shaugh- 
nessy, took part in another battle. Play in 
both tilts was impressive, despite an ex- 
ceptionally hot day. What impressed more 
than anything else was the spirit and cn- 


thusiasm displayed by every player on the 

field. They must keep stepping to stay in 
Shaughnessy's good graces, lie's no coach 
for sluggards. 

Maryland's dependables next Fall will 
be made up of a mixture of what usually 
is to a coach's liking, including seven sen 
iors, eleven juniors, and nine sophs. This 
melds experience, fire and ambition that 
normally brings success. Paul Flick, a 203 
pound, 6-foot 3-inch center, is the only 
soph who has been running on the tenta- 
tive first eleven, all the others being letter 
men. There arc 14 letter winners in all 
among the 27, with half of the reserve 
group of 16 being rookies. 

Will Have Sizable Squad 

There will be just about twice 27 on 
the varsity squad next Fall, though, as 
Shaughnessy touched off a new spark in 
football at College Park. Doubtless some 
helping talent will come out of this en- 
thusiastic array not only for next season 
but for 1943. Ever) man who reports next 
Fall will be carried on some team. 

Shaughnessy has much more to think 
about at Maryland than football. A di 
rector of physical education, he is respon- 
sible for an encompassing fitness program 
and he also is athletic director.

For beauty of composition and all 'round 
good photography we think the cover pic- 
ture used on this issue of the News is 
about tops. YVe regret that cost prevents 
us from showing it to you in its original 
Kodachrome colors. The picture was taken 
by David Johnson, '41, who was editor of 
the All- American Terrapin of that vear. 
Dave is now serving in Uncle Sam's Navy. 

The picture shows the beautiful West 
front of the new Administration Building 
which houses publication, financial and 
administrative offices of the University. 
The new University Armory is being erect- 
ed at the present time directly back of the 
Administration Building.

Herewith we publish an article by Elizabeth K. Haviland, '36, 
who is now located at Wilmington College, Wilmington, Ohio, 
where she is a member of the biology department. Prior to joining 
tlic faculty of Wilmington College in 1941, Miss I had 
been principal of the Girls' School. Friends African Mission, 
Kisiimn-Kcnva Colony, East Africa. Her experiences in making 
the return trip from Easl Africa were so interesting that w< 
asked her to prepare this article for the readers of the News. 

After four and one-half years' sojourn in foreign lands 1 turned 
my steps homeward in 1941. I did so with some misgivings be- 
cause arrangements to travel by boat could not be made by mail 
and \vc had to go four hundred miles to make them and wait for 
the boat. 

The overland trip by British compartment railroad tram was 
interesting. At that time soldiers were busy in Kenya Colony. 
East Africa, preparing for the attack on Ethiopia. Soldiers and all 
their equipment clogged the capital. From the compartment win 
dow mountains, steep wooded valleys, and wide grassy plains passed 
in rapid succession. 

Many Wild Animals 

Sometimes dozens of ostrich, zebra, wildebeest, Thompson's 
gazelle and other kinds of deer could be seen from the window 
and twice several giraffe were seen fairly near the train. None of 
these animals were much disturbed by the train. A few would 
start to run, but many never lifted their heads. Once two ani- 
mals were seen fighting, but the noisy train caused no pause in 
their quarrel. 

At Mombasa, the port for Kenya Colony, we finally got booking 
on a Dutch East Indian boat which was to sail "early in January." 
It gives one an uncertain feeling to have paid your money but 
not know the name of the boat or exact date of sailing. As in- 
structed, every second day we asked at the booking office if they 
knew yet. After almost three weeks of this, we were told the boat 
was in and we were to board her before noon the next day. 
Much Red Tape 

After more than the usual amount of red tape we got aboard. 
There we sat until 5 o'clock slowly melting in the heat. \Yc 
understood that the boat was sailing straight for Singapore but 
again the expediency of war made her go a night's journey south 
and stay there a day before starting east. 

The trip was nerve wearing because of rumors and no facts. 
We could not find out the boat's speed nor when we would land 
and the heat and blackout added to our discomfort. It was, indeed, 
with a sigh of relief that we reached Singapore. 

However, more red tape followed here and the only saving thing 
was the courtesy of the officials. We spent most of two days going 
from one office to another, waiting for this signature or that 
paper. Finally we got our money, which had been confiscated, and 
had it changed into local currency. We could not get "gold dol- 
lars" (U. S. money) for it was too valuable. 

Singapore is a tropical port, hot and humid. For this reason, 
and others, we did not regret that our stay was short. The harbor 
was fortified, mined, camouflaged, and partly closed by great chains 
which left only enough room for one boat to pass at a time. 

I In next boat, anothei I )nt< li I is) Indies :, was mu I 

.mil bettei ilr in the lust It wa . good thin i th< ( bin 
lived up to its had reputation and even Jad to 

sit aboul quietly. It took five days to K rid the 

change in climate w is veiv noti illj as il rained 

of the four d.i\s we win tin re 

Arrive Ar Hong Kong 

Hong Kong is called a free porl and while there was not so 
muth red tape, still we spent hours waiting foi thi 
enters to decide whethei we could in foui days oi nol \Mu 
tins decision was made we had more waiting — hours oi it — to 

get our tickets filled out. 

In between this business and the rains we walked aboul 
sheets, looking at the dress woik and wares ol tin peoplt It was 
fascinating to sec the mixture of old and new. women mending 
silk hose with all the tare Chinese people use m making million! 
erv. men making sandals of old automobile tucs. and (.living 

and enlaying ash trays in ancient patterns, and the traditional 
Chinese dress worn with Western shoes 

On a raw. rainy morning we went on the big Japanese steamer 
that was to carry us to our own United States. The w.itci was .i 
hit rough in the harbor and we held our breath as hcavv baggage 
was balanced precariously on a man's back while he transferred 
it from lighter to ship. I saw no mishap, but there were plenty 
of tales of salt water baths given luggage at various times. 

At List we were on a boat posted its daily progress and said 
when it was going to get to a place. Our first stop was Shanghai, 
but we were not very eager to go ashore. The conflict there made 
moving about rather dangerous and it was cloudy and cold. The 
icicles were the first I had seen in three \c.irs. We were sure the 
thermometer, which registered just below freezing, was wrong 
as it felt to us that below zero would be nearer right. Because of 
the time of year the temperature changes were much more no- 
ticeable than they would have been in June. The seas were pretty 
stormy, too. However, our boat was a large one and we were com- 
paratively comfortable. We felt the coolness of the Japanese 
officers and stewards but there was no lack of service. 
Japan Disappoints 

From Shanghai we traveled eastvvardly and the weather mod- 
erated. Reason told us that the stories of beautiful Japan could 
not all be true in winter but it was disappointing to sec the gray 
skies, dull fields and dripping houses. The rain was almost con- 
tinuous while we were in ports of Japan. We never did see Mount 
Fiji. This and the curtness of the landing officials kept us from 
exploring much. The uninviting, shopworn displays in shop win- 
dows, the time we did go for a walk, did not lead us on very far 
and helped us believe the stories of poverty we heard later. Japan 
is using every resource to win licr war with China and be prepared 
for anything else, yet she wants to appear at ease economically. 

From Japan we sailed for Honolulu. For a week we saw no land 
but our hearts rejoiced because it was warmer, the sun was shining, 
and we were nearing our native land. Customs declaration p.ipcis 
arc long and often hard to fill out, yet thrilling in a way. This tunc 
we filled them out and handed them in before getting to Honolulu. 

The big event of this week was "date day." Every day we trav- 
eled east the clock was set forward thirty minutes. This is done in 
the night and makes breakfast time come more quickly than is 
always desirable. "Date day" for us was February 25. The second 
clay of this date was marked Feb. 25, 1941 I 2nd i on our menus.

From October, 1940, until July, 1941, 
Dr. Bellows was employed by the War De- 
partment in charge of camouflage at a new 
fort which was under construction "'some- 
where in New England." Last July he ac-

Alumna Has Exciting Trip 

(Continued from page 3) 

This boat did not have any special cere- 
mony as some do. We actually crossed the 
line in the night. 

Honolulu Is Beautiful 

Honolulu is an interesting port with its 
beautiful tropical colors, variety in style 
of buildings, wide range of goods in the 
shops and types of people. The freedom 
to do as we wished and the hospitality of 
the people filled our hearts with joy. We 
were in our own land and although we 
had several days of travel to reach "The 
Coast'' ( West Coast of U. S. A. to Hawaii- 
ans) we basked in the first complete free- 
dom of many weeks. At the end of the day 
we went back to our ship, tired in body but 
refreshed in spirit. We watched people 
throw their wreaths in the water, hoping 
they would float back to the island and thus 
show that the thrower would return. We 
echoed the wish to return to this sunny 

Everyone was packing the next day as we 
were promised a very bad storm before 
reaching San Francisco. We had visions 
of holding to our bed-rails. However, the 
storm passed before us and we did not 
even have a rough sea. It was hard to real- 
ize we were really very far from land. Early 
one foggy morning we got up to see our 
ship sliding slowly under the Golden Gate 
Bridge. Landing was yet before us but we 
were in native waters and only those who 
have been in foreign lands in troubled 
times can fully realize our relief and joy.

Board of Trade for Army 

William H. Press, '28, recently resigned 
his position as executive secretary of the 
Washington Board of Trade to report for 
active duty as a Captain in the Corps of

be remembered by his classmates, was the 
able treasurer of his class for two years, and 
has made an enviable reputation in his po- 
sition with the Board of Trade. 

L. P. McLachlen, President of the Board, 
declared that Press' resignation was a 
major loss to the organization. In accepting 
the resignation he stated: "Your services 
and contributions to the Board of Trade 
and your able leadership and direction of 
its activities, have been of permanent 
value, not only to the organization but to 
the entire community. I speak the senti- 
ment of our officers, our directors and our 
entire membership in stressing the deep 
and sincere regret with which we accept 
your resignation." 

Board of Regents Member

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H.("Bill") HOTTEL: 


Ten Is Sti 

umr :r I en is otrong; 
Nin Should Be Fair 

N iryland's lacrosse squad is exception- 
al) > well set and the Old Line nine is fairly 
well fixed for the games they will play as 
headlincrs of the Summer program of 
physical fitness at College Park. 

In fact, the stickmen. who will play four 
games, appear somewhat better off than 
for the regular 1942 campaign, while the 
diamonders, who have eight tilts listed, will 
lack much of their Spring strength. 

Only Bill McGregor, Bob Stockbridge, 
Landis Hill and Ashton Thumm of the 
Spring lacrosse squad will be missing and 
only the first two named were regulars. 
McGregor was graduated and Stockbridge 
will not return until Fall. 

13 Lettermen Are Left 
This leaves 13 lettermen who will be 
aided greatly by some capable talent from 
the frosh squad. "M" men on hand are 
Jim Forbes and Barnet Broughton, goalies; 
Ralph Burlin, Jack Dittmar, Bob Fetters 
and Howard Keller, defense players; Bill 
Tarbert, John Hoyert, Bill Taylor and 
Bernie Ulman, midfielders, and Ray Gre- 
lecki, Milt VandenBerg and Carroll Rowny, 
close attack. Howard Smedley, John Rup- 
persberger and Lloyd Mallonee, defense; 
Otts Lundvall, midfielder, and Bob Smith, 
close attack, are impressive recruits. 

However, the sad part of the situation is 
that Forbes, Burlin, Fetters, Keller, Gre- 
lecki and VandenBerg, who ordinarily 
would be on hand for the 1943 season, are 
slated to go out with the advanced gradu- 
ation class next February. 

Baseball Losses Heavy 

Baseball lost Bob Smith, pitcher; Louis 
Tierney, catcher; Mearle DuVall, first base; 
Jim Wharton, second, and Roscoe Whipp, 
third, and Ernie Travis, outfielder, is not 
in school this semester. 

Lefty Crist, Floyd Roberts and Max 
Hunt, pitchers; Kenny Bransdorf, catcher; 
Clark Hudak, Bill Ellett and Henry Sunier, 
infielders, and Danny Boothe and Hal 
Evans, outfielders, are the lettermen left- 
overs. Also on hand as leading perform- 
ers are Jack Brenner, catcher, and Jack 
Wright, pitcher, who were kept out of 
baseball by Spring grid drills; Jim Kinsman, 
inficlder, and Sam Burch, catcher, 1942 re- 
serves, and some promising rookies are 
Charley Cawunder, first base; Bill Slater,

infielders, and Bill Adkins, who won all 
three games he hurled for the frosh. 

In all there are more than 45 stickmen 
and about 25 diamonders toiling. 

Burton Shipley and Jack Faber, of 
course, are coaching the baseball and la- 
crosse squads respectively. "Ship" is in his

Still Two Spots Open 
On 1942 Grid Card 

Maryland's 1942 football schedule, in 
which several changes have been made, 
principally as to location of games, still is 
not completely settled. 

There now are two dates open, October 
3, cancelled by Hampden-Sydney, and No- 
vember 21, which was made available 
when the Washington and Lee clash was 
shifted from Thanksgiving Day to the 

It is certain that October 3 will be 
filled, as there are several applicants for 
the date, but nothing has developed as to 
November 2 1 . 

is the list as it appeared when the 
News went to press: 

—Connecticut at College Park. 

-Rutgers at Baltimore Stadium. 

-V. M. I. at Lexington. 

-Western Maryland at Baltimore Stad. 

-Florida at Griffith Stadium in Wash- 

-Duke at Durham. 

-Virginia at Charlottesville. 

-Washington and Lee at College Park 



















Athletes Are Leaders 
In Military Unit 

Maryland athletes hold the majority of 
the top positions in the R. O. T. C. Unit. 

Boots Conrad, all-State football player 
and track letterman, is the colonel, while 
Ray Grelecki, lacrosse ace; Bernie Ulman, 
football and lacrosse star, and Reggy Vin- 
cent, grid tackle, are lieutenant-colonels. 

Grelecki also is president of the Student 
Government Association. 

A host of other athletes hold the rank 
of captain and lieutenant. 

Old Liners Overlooked 
On Star Stick Team 

For the first time in years Maryland 
didn't place a lacrosse player on the all- 
America team this season. Ray Grelecki, 
attack man, and Bill McGregor, second de- 
fense, were named for the second team and 
Jim Forbes, goalie, was on the third ten. 

It was a surprise and shock to the Old 
Liners that Grelecki was not chosen for the 
first team. He was outstanding all season 
and set a new Maryland scoring record by 
piling up 30 goals. 

This was four above the previous record 
total of 26, made by John Christhilf in 
1936 and tied by Rip Hewitt in 1939. - 

It also was thought that Bob Fetters, 
close defense man, would get some national 

Grelecki, Fetters and Forbes were picked 
for the all-State first ten. 


Glenn Warner, physical education di- 
rector, has resigned to join the Naval Acad- 
emy staff. Besides doing great work in 
intramurals, he put the Old Liners on the 
map with a soccer team that lost only one 
game in two years and was unbeaten last

A prominent Maryland alumnus, C. 
Walter Cole, '21, of Towson, has an- 
nounced his candidacy for nomination to 
the U. S. House of Representatives from 
Maryland's Second Congressional District, 
and will run in the Democratic primaries 
next month. 

Representative William P. Cole, '10, 
the present incumbent, and a brother of 
the new Congressional aspirant, has received 
a Federal judgeship appointment and thus 
will not be a candidate for re-election. He 
has represented the Second District con- 
tinuously since 1931, and also served a 
term from 1927 to 1929. 

The new Cole candidate for Congress is 
a native of Baltimore County and has been 
associated with his brother since 192". He 
was graduated from the Harvard Law 
School in 1924 and since then has been 
engaged in the active practice of law. A 
past president of the Baltimore County 
Bar Association, he is also a member of the 
Maryland State and American Bar Asso- 

A past president of the University of 
Maryland Alumni Association, he was ap- 
pointed in 1939 by Governor Herbert R. 
O'Conor as a member of the National Con- 
ference of Commissioners on Uniform 
State Laws, which is a national legisla-

Alumni Cordially Invited 
To Attend Gala Affair 

Alumni arc cordially invited to attend a 

gala week cud " \utumn Carnival" Sep- 
tember 2 5, 26, and 2", which is being 
planned by undergraduates at the Uni- 
versity as a conclusion to the first summer 
semester program ever held at the Uni- 
\cisity of Maryland. 

\ highlight of the three day celebration 
will be the debut of the first Maryland 
team coached by Clark Shaughnessey. The 
Terps will inaugurate their l l M2 season 
September 26 against the University of 
Connecticut, an outstanding team which 
is making its first appearance on a Uni- 
versity of Maryland pigskin schedule. Pros- 
pects are running high that this engage- 
ment will start the Old Liners off on the 
most successful season in recent years. 
"T" Formation Described 

Students, faculty and alumni will get a 
preliminary demonstration of the famed 
"T" formation on Friday night in Byrd 
Stadium at an exhibition which will be 
described personally by Mr. Shaughnessy. 
The "T" formation demonstration will be 
preceded by a sham battle, staged by mem- 
bers of the ROTC with the aid of a de- 
tachment of soldiers from Fort Meade. 

Before the program in Byrd Stadium gets 
under way, a huge and colorful torch- 
light parade, headed by the University 
band, will be started up College Avenue, 
across the boulevard, and through the 
campus. The procession will halt on the 
knoll in front of the library and a pep 
rally will be led by student cheer leaders, 
with awards being made for the best float 
entries in the parade. Following the foot- 
ball exhibition in the stadium, fraternity 
and sorority houses will join in sponsoring 
a gigantic chain of rotary dances, conclud- 
ing Friday's program. 

Victory Ball 

Saturday night a Harvest Victory Ball 
will be held in the Gym-Armory. The dance 
is to be informal and will carry out the 
spirit of the harvest season. 

Taking cognizance of the importance of 
spiritual morale during war time, Sunday's 
program will be of a more serious nature. 
An outdoor sunrise service has been sched- 
uled for 8 a. m. in Byrd Stadium. The

Guinea natives who later proved friendly. 

"Slimmons said the five officers left 
Cavite naval base separately for Bataan

the Island of Cebu on a confidential mis- 
sion. The Japanese came to the island the 
morning of April Q . The officers got aw.iv

ing boats.' said Slimmons. 'so he handled 
the boat. Dorscy was an engineer in civil 
life and he kept the boat from falling apart. 
Lipsitt commanded the galley but all 
cooked,' he said. 

"Winds and currents were against them 
at first, the voyagers said. They wanted to 
sail at night and hide in the daytime, but 
the winds died down at night and it took 
them 20 days to pass the southernmost tip 
of the Philippines and reach the open sea. 
Then they were on the sea 1 1 days with- 
out a sight of land. They followed the 
12Sth Meridian by means of the alarm 
clock. They knew the time the sun should 
set on this meridian and if set too early 
they steered one way to bring them back 
to the course; if it set too late they headed

Dr. Pyle Appointed Dean 
Of Collese Of Commerce 

Dr. J. Freeman Pyle, Dean of the Col- 
or Business Administration at Mar 

quette University, lias been named Dean 
of the College of Commerce of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, and will take over his 
duties on September 1, it is announced by 
President Byrd. Dr. Pyle succeeds Dean 
\\ . Mackenzie Stevens, who tendered his 
resignation last spring to become treasurer 
of the Western Maryland Dairy. 

The new dean is a native of Indiana and 
is a graduate of the University of Chicago, 
where he also took his doctorate. He has 
been successively head of the Department 
of Economics and Professor of Economics 
and Marketing, and Dean of the College 
of Business Administration at Marquette 
since 1925. Prior to that he was Instructor 
in Economics and Business Organization 
in the School of Commerce and Adminis- 
tration of the University of Chicago, and 
Lecturer in Economics in the School of 
Commerce of Northwestern University. 
Well Known As Author 

Dr. Pyle is the author of many books 
and articles and his book on marketing 
principles is now in use as a text in many 
colleges and universities throughout the 
country. He is preparing a book on market- 
ing management to be published this year, 
and has conducted a number of marketing 
research projects in both public and private 
organizations. In addition to the above, 
his publications have varied from analysis 
of various state income tax laws to the 
determination of location standards of 
layout for retail concerns, marketing ad- 
ministration and what the consumer thinks 
of advertising. 

The present College of Commerce was 
organized by Dr. Stevens when he joined 
the staff of the University in 1937. Since 
that time the faculty of the college has 
more than doubled and the student body 
has become one of the largest of any col- 
lege in the University. In 1940 the high 
standard of its scholastic work was officially- 
recognized by an invitation to membership 
in the American Association of Collegiate 
Schools of Business, an association which 
limits its membership to a few of the out- 
standing business schools of the country. 
Changes Planned 

According to Dr. Byrd certain changes 
will be made in the objectives of the col- 
lege. The name of the college will prob- 
ably be changed from College of Com- 
merce to College of Business and Public 
Administration. In addition, a good deal 
of attention will be given to research in 
the influence of government on business. 
Emphasis will be placed on courses de- 
signed to fit men and women for positions

men caught fish to supplement these ra-

had been cut down. 

"It was May 10 that they finally sighted 
land and the next day they saw natives 
coming out in a small boat with spears. 
"They followed us for about 10 miles or 
two hours,' said Slimmons. 'Then through 
glasses we saw one smile, so we hove to 
and let them come up. But we had 45s 
within reach.' 

"They had a stroke of good luck once 
on their voyage when they sighted a beau- 
tiful waterfall ashore just as their water 
was near exhaustion. 'We all took baths 
amidst a profusion of wild orchids,' said 
one of the officers. But their greatest luck 
came on July 10 when they encountered 
a vessel in a place that had not been visited 
by a ship since November. It brought them 
to Australia." 

A graduate of Baltimore Polytechnic, 
Dorsey matriculated at the University of 
Maryland in 1929 and graduated three 
years later with a B.S. in civil engineering. 
Dean S. S. Steinberg of the College of 
Engineering rated him as a "better than 
average student" and aided him in securing 
a job as senior draftsman with the Penn- 
sylvania Department of Highways. 

Later, Dorsey secured a position with 
the E. I. Dupont Company in Wilming- 
ton, Del., as assistant engineer with the 
construction division. 

A member of Sigma Phi Sigma social fra- 
ternity, now Sigma Chi, Dorsey received 
his commission last year and was sent to 
the Far East in December. His father, 
Leander Dorsey, and a sister, Miss Marie 
Dorsey, are now in the Virgin Islands. 

Before entering the Navy, Lieutenant 
Dorsey, who is a native Baltimorean, lived 
with relatives, Mr. and Mrs. Richard C. 
Kemp, of the 1700 block Bolton St. 

Male Students Enroll 
Under New Military Plan 

University of Maryland male students 
began voluntary enrollment in the Army 
this summer under the new general plan 
known as the Enlisted Reserve Corps, sim- 
ilar to the system now maintained by the 

At a general assembly of University men, 
Colonel Robert E. Wysor, Jr., head of the 
University's Military Department, pointed 
out that the purpose of the student enlist- 
ment by the Army is to insure for the 
Army a future source of qualified officer

Engineering College Leads 
In Enrollment Increase 

The University's College of Engineering 
led all other engineering schools in the 
country last year with a 33 percent increase 
in its freshman enrollment, it was reported 
by Dean S. S. Steinberg recently in his 
anual report before the Alumni Board of 
the College of Engineering. 

About 80 percent of the 1942 gradu- 
ates went into military service immediately 
and the remainder entered vital war in- 
dustries, Dean Steinberg disclosed. Salaries 
offered engineers are better than ever be- 
fore, the dean declared, and each man in 
the graduating class had several offers from 
which to choose. 

In April of this year the College of En- 
gineering was able to secure establishment 
on the campus of the War Department's 
Civilian Protection School, formerly lo- 
cated at Edgewood Arsenal. The College 
Park school is one of seven located through- 
out the country and maintained by the 
Army to train selected civilian personnel. 
Students for this school are drawn from 
as far north as New York, as far west as 
Illinois and as far south as South Carolina. 

During the past year the engineering de- 
fense training program under the auspices 
of the U. S. Office of Education was con- 
tinued and enlarged, the dean reported. 
About 2,000 men and women completed 
these courses and were awarded certificates. 
A new training center to give courses in 
Industrial Safety Engineering at Aberdeen 
was recently added to the group of training 
centers already established throughout the 


Maryland Coeds Assist

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

= By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 

Shipley Is In His 20th Year, Faber In His 16th 
As Members Of Maryland's Coaching Staff 

H. Burton Shipley, basket ball and base- 
ball mentor, and Dr. John E. (Jack) 
Faber, lacrosse coach, who handled Sum- 
mer diamond and stick combinations, are 
the veterans of the Mankind staff. Ship- 
ley, in his 20th season, and Faber, in his 
16th year, have done all right by the Old 

Both are old grads. Shipley in the class 
of '14 and Faber in '26. Faber, however. 
kept on to get his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. 
He is a bacteriologist but never has been 
able to kill the athletic germ that infests 

Faber never has come close to having 
a losing lacrosse campaign. In the past 15 
years, his teams have captured 108 college 
games, lost 16 and tied one, but have been 
on the short end of battles with club out- 
fits, principally the powerful Mt. Washing- 
ton of Baltimore, taking only 6 of 16 

Clean Slates Three Seasons 

In the last seven years, when a national 
collegiate champion has been named, the 
Old Liners have taken three titles, shared 
another and were runnersup once. In three 
of these seasons Faber's squads have had 
clean slates against college foes — in 1940, 
1937 and 1936 — winning a total of 25 

That tie game, unusual in lacrosse, was 
with Navy on a sizzling hot day in 1934; 
the old rivals agreeing to call it off at 6-all 
after two extra periods. 

Faber has consistently battled the major 
college teams in lacrosse on his schedules — 
Army, Navy, Hopkins, Princeton and St. 
John's, until the latter gave up sports — 
and that he has averaged only one defeat a 
season is a tribute to his coaching and that 
of Al Hcagy, his aide. 

Has Few Losing Seasons 

Shipley, with opposition that collective- 
ly is about an even proposition, has a good 
winning margin in both sports. In the 19 
seasons that are history, he has taken 206 

basket ball games and lost 145, while on 
the diamond he lias chalked up 184 vic- 
tories against 1 52 setbacks and one tie. The 
deadlock was a 5-5, 10-inning affair with 
North Carolina State back in 1930. 

Both of Shipley's teams have been on 
the right side of the ledger in 13 of the 
19 seasons and in another on the diamond 
he broke even. His greatest basket ball 
mark was in 1932 when an outfit, led by 
All- America Bozie Berger, won 16 games 
against 3 losses and captured the Southern 
Conference crown. His baseball squad 
gained the Conference title in 1936, a 
season in which it took 14 of 20 games, 
but has bettered this record in several other 

Remain On Staff 

Shipley and Faber remain as cogs in 
Clark Shaughnessy's set-up, the former 
staying in charge of the court and diamond 
pastimes and the latter continuing with la- 
crosse in addition to serving as assistant 
athletic director. 

Lacrosse Team Makes 
Sweep Of Four Tilts 

Maryland's summer lacrosse team, strict- 
ly of national championship caliber, waltzed 
through its four-game schedule, walloping 
Penn State, 13-0; Hopkins twice, 8;1 and 
8-0, and Navy, 9-2. 

It was a finely balanced combination, 
the vets of the Spring campaign being 
bolstered by Sophs Howard Smedley, John 
Ruppcrsberger and Lloyd Mallonee on 
defense and Otts Lundvall and Snuffy 
Smith on attack. 

Forbes, goal; Fetters, Keller and Ditt- 
mar, defense; Tarbcrt, Taylor, Ulman, Hoy- 
crt and Mondt, midfield, and Grelecki, 
VandenBcrg, Rowny and Mariner on at- 
tack, were the vets in action. 

VandenBcrg led the scoring with 1 1 
goals and Grelecki chalked up 10. 

Boothe Decides To Join 
Grid Squad In Fall 

Danny Boothe, Maryland's smooth ccn- 
terfielder, intends to come out for the 
football squad in the Fall and he should 
make Clark Shaughnessy a great end. 
Boothe. whose fielding, throwing and base 
running is fully up to major league caliber, 
also is hitting well. 

He stands 6 feet 3 inches, weighs 180 
pounds and is an antelope on his feet. 

Boothe was a three-letter athlete at 
Roosevelt High in Washington, being an 
ace gridder and basketer also, but so far he 
has found time to play only baseball at 
Maryland. He is a junior in the College of 



Lakehurst, N. J., Naval Air Station has 
been scheduled for a football game for 
October 3 at College Park, taking the place 
of the contest that was cancelled by Hamp- 
den-Sydney. It should be a much better 
attraction than the Death Valley collegians, 
whose gridiron outlook is none too bright 
for 1942. 



Bobby Goldstein, former Virginia ace, 
who coached the Maryland boxers to a 
successful 1942 season, has gone into the 
Army. He has been named a second lieu- 
tenant and assigned to Maxwell Field, Ala., 
where it is expected he will do physical 
fitness work. His squad won four matches, 
lost two and tied one in the regular season 
and then captured the Eastern Intercol- 
legiate crown when invited as a fill-in team. 

Maryland, with rain halting two games, 
played only three of the first five tilts of 
its Summer Baseball League schedule. 
George Washington was routed, 14-0, but 
the Old Liners bowed to Georgetown, 0-11, 
and Navy, 2-10. Play ends on August 22, 
but it is hoped to play the postponed games.

material. The University of Maryland, Col- 
onel Wysor disclosed, has been given a 
quota of 1,000 vacancies in the new en- 
listed reserve corps to be filled by Dec. 31. 

Students who apply for admission in the 
new reserve corps and pass the qualifying 
exams will be permitted to continue their 
college course on an inactive reserve status. 
Those who fail to maintain a satisfactory 
scholastic average or who are deemed by 
the Army not to have the necessary quali- 
fications to become an officer will be sub 
ject to call by their draft boards. 

Under the new compulsory ruling re- 
cently adopted by the University's Board 
of Regents, all physically fit men will be 
given military training, beginning in Oc- 
tober. However, this ruling docs not make 
it compulsory for all men to register with 
the reserve corps. University military an 
thorities say that more than 2,000 stu- 
dents will be in uniform this fall.

of the American Road Builders' Associa- 
tion, and continued as Regional Adviser 
for defense training for Maryland and the 
District of Columbia. Dr. John E. Young-

retary of the Aviation Division of the Amer- 
ican Society of Mechanical Engineers. 

Chappell Commands Marine 
Barracks In Puerto Rico 

Kenneth Baldwin Chappell, '23, Com- 
manding Officer of the Marine Barracks 
at the U. S. Naval Air Station, San Juan 
Puerto Rico, has just been promoted to 
the rank of lieutenant colonel. 

A native of Kensington, Maryland, Col 
onel Chappell was commissioned a second 
lieutenant in 1922 and entered the U. S. 
Marine Corps right after being graduated. 
Taking the Reserve Officers' Training 
course as an undergraduate, he became an 
officer in the Cadet Corps in his upperclass 
years. He rose to first lieutenant while on 
duty at Guantanamo, Cuba, in 1930 and 
attained his captaincy in 193 3 at Ouantico. 
It was while an instructor at the Marine 
Basic School in Philadelphia that he was 
made a major in 1939. He came to Puerto 
Rico as commanding officer of Marine Bar- 
racks about a year ago. 

Colonel Chappell's sea duty includes 
service aboard the U. S. S. Rochester, Mil 
waukee, Arkansas. New Mexico, and 
Chester, in the latter case being in com 
mand of the Marine detachment from 
1936-1938. His wife and then three chil- 
dren are now living in Clearwater, Fla.

The tang of fall is in the air and the 
crash of football players soon will be 
heard on college playing fields in every 
section of the nation. As American as 
hot dogs and mustard, football is as much 
a part of the autumn season as cornshocks 
and pumpkins or the brilliantly lined fo- 
liage of the countryside. 

University of Maryland Alumni, stu- 
dents and faculty are eagerly looking for- 
ward to the current football season and 
have great hopes that the Shaughnessy 
trained team is going to make football his- 
tory at College Park. All who have watched 
the squad working under Mr. Shaughnessy 
have been thrilled at the fine spirit shown 
by each member and the snap and pre- 
cision of the entire group. 

Just to get you in the right spirit we 
show a fine "action" shot on the cover 
of this issue of the News. This picture 
was taken during an exciting moment in 
the Washington and Lee game last Fall 
which Maryland won, 6 to 0. 




Staff appointments are now being 
made to men and women college 
graduates and undergraduates. In- 
teresting positions available in a 
medical and educational environ- 
ment for those who may plan even- 
tually to enter a profession or busi- 
ness where applied psychology plays 
an important role. An excellent op- 
portunity to learn in a practical 
way some of the fundamentals of 
personality and behavior and thus 
to acquire a better understanding 
of oneself as well as others. For de-

If Colonel Robert Wysor, Jr., head of the University ol 
Maryland Military Department, has an) voice in the matter ever) 
L O. T. C. cadet who graduates from the University foi 1 1 ic- 
{oration will be ;is fully equipped to meet the rigors ol modem 

vnr as it is humanly possible to make him. 

Only through the medium of actual experience do men be 
:onic thoroughly versed in the art of modern warfare is Colonel 
Rfysor's opinion. And. since l l H0. when lie became head of the 
lepartment, one of his chief aims lias been to give his cadets 
i practical training program that will prepare them for the de- 
hands of war-time duty. Evidence thai tins belief has borne fruit 
s brought out by the fact that the colonel has a desk drawer of 
etters from recent R. O. T. C. graduates all saying, in one way 
>r another, this statement: "We are <;ettmg along fine m the 
amy because we seem fo have had more practical training than 
jave most college men." 

More Instruction 

Since September, 1941, although War Department regulations 
cquire only IS 3 hours of work per two-semester year for ad- 
vanced R. O. T. C. students. University of Maryland cadets have 
)een receiving 330 hours of work, more than double the mini- 
Bum requirement. During this past summer, advanced students 
lave participated in a very active out-door program which, Col- 
Miel Wysor declares, will make them "the best trained men, 
physically and professional}-, that have ever received commissions 
inder me." 

Immediatey, in his first semester, every cadet is taught how to 
ranclle a fortv-five automatic, the Browning automatic rifle, a ma- 
chine gun and trench mortars. Thus, if the student is unable to 
complete either a basic or advanced course, he is already familiar 
vith the most important army weapons. 

Take Long Marches

Obstacle Course 

One of the features of the University's military program lias 
been an obstacle course patterned after similai set ups at n 
arm) camps. Onlj the toughest features of the various courses 
inspected were incorporated in the College Park course and more 
than one student has had his physical mettle put to a severe test 
in running the course in the prescribed tunc. The climax of the 
obstacle course is a 1 ~ foot broad jump over a six foot deep 
stream. An alternative to making the 1" foot leap is to jump and 
swing across the stream on a rope. 

\ combat range has been cut out of a hillside near the campus 
and the cadets practice there with the new Garand rifles and 
machine guns. A bayonet course is also in use. familiarizing stu- 
dents with the use of that instrument. 

Recently, Senior R. O. T. C. members made a 26 mile hike into 
Montgomery Count} on an ovei night trip. As a dawn attack was 
planned, cadets rolled up for sleep at a fairly early hour but before 
any had gone to sleep, the camp was fired on and for the rest of 
the night the entire company was kept on an alert basis At 
2 a. in. sleepy-eyed cadets made preparations for the dawn attack 
on a point three miles away. Following breakfast, many problems 
were earned out and during the entire trip, members of the ncvvlv 
organized R. O. T. C. Signal Corps unit maintained constant 
communication with headquarters at College Park by radio.

which are used in the military program to prepare the students 

for modern-day war. The lower picture shows just one of 

the "obstacles" in the obstacle course. 


R.O.T.C. Unit At University 

(Continued from page 3) 

Have Signal Corps 

Lieutenants James R. Pinkerton and 
James V. Barker arc in charge of the fully- 
equipped Signal Corps unit which now in- 
cludes about 25 men. The Signal Corps 
men are taught the Morse Code, how to 
set up telephone and radio communica- 
tions in the field, and lay lines during the 
day or night. 

In addition to the military classes, three 
hours per week are spent in mass calis- 
thenics. Cadets get about 20 hours of 
boxing, in addition to tumbling, track, 
basket ball, soccer and football, and gym 
workouts. In October, each company will 
organize contact football teams which will 
play regular schedules. 

The physical side of the military pro- 
gram has been so successful that Head 
Coach Clark Shaughnessy was able to 
eliminate some of the preliminary football 
training this fall. 

Another practical side to the University 
program has been the utilization of cadets 
as 24-hour guards for important buildings 
on the campus. Senior R. O. T. C. offi- 
cers act as officers of the day and officers 
of the guard while the Juniors act as cor- 
porals. By the end of the current semester, 
every R. O. T. C. cadet will have served 
some time on guard duty. 

The 500 members of the R. O. T. C. 
battalion got a real taste of "Judo" tactics 
this month when the famed Major Fran- 
cois D'Eliscu, now directing the Combat 
and Ranger School for the 76th Division 
at Fort Meade, visited the campus for a 
day. Most of the students admit they 
couldn't begin to keep up the pace which 
the 47-year-old "Commando" instructor 
set as be taught individual classes through- 
out the day. Running, riding piggy-back, 
crawling on their stomachs, wrestling, and 
blocking were on the list of personal com- 
bat tactics demonstrated by Major D'El- 
iscu. He also gave exhibitions in disarm- 
ing men holding bayonets and revolvers. 

A VISITOR— Lieutenant J. David 
Leonard. '42, who recently finished his 
officers' training at Fort Knox, Kentucky, 
spent several days visiting his parents, Mr. 
and Mrs. Fred J. Leonard of Bctbcsda 
before going to Fort Benning. Georgia, to 
report for duty. Before joining the armed 
forces he was associated with the Home 
Loan Corporation in Washington. He is 
now on maneuvers "somewhere in the 
South." His many friends in Bethcsda and 
Chevj Chase will be pleased to know of 
his recent promotion in rank. 

Governor O'Conor Assists 
In Victory Bull Campaign 

Governor Herbert R. O'Conor, of Mary- 
land, was a recent visitor to the University 
of Mankind campus, at which time he 
presented a pure bred Jersey bull to each 
of 16 Maryland farmers. The animals 
were donated bv Jersey breeders of the 
State as their part in a nation-wide Vic- 
tory Bull Campaign sponsored by the 
American Jersey Cattle Club. F. Henry 
Jones, owner of Ayrlawn Farms, Bethesda, 
Md., is president of the Maryland Jersey 
Cattle Club and was in charge of arrange- 

In making the presentation Governor 
O'Conor stated that 2" other Governors 
had taken part in similar events in their 
respective States. He said that "Dairymen 
and farmers are going to have an increas- 
inglv important part in deciding the strug- 
gle in which we are engaged, as food, es- 
pecially fats, will become a vital factor." 
Declaring that nothing matters now so 
much as victory, he urged all to pull to- 
gether as Marylanders to play our full 

Dr. Kenneth L. Turk, head of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Dairy Department, 
also addressed the group, which numbered 
approximately 100. 

Harry Boswell Stationed 
At Army Field In Texas 

Lieutenant Harry A. Boswell, Jr., son 
of Mr. and Mrs. Harry A. Boswell, of 
Hyattsville, Md., is now on duty in the ad- 
ministrative branch of the U. S. Army Air 
Corps at Duncan Field, San Antonio, 
Texas. He received his commission upon 
graduation from the University last May 
and began his army career at Fort Myer, 
Va., on June 16. After serving there for a 
week he was assigned to Duncan Field. 

Lieutenant Boswell made an outstand- 
ing record as a student at the University. 
Scholastically he stood in second place in 
the College of Commerce in his senior 
year. He served as vice-president, treasurer, 
and director of the University's Collegiate 
Chamber of Commerce. He also served 
as a lieutenant in the R. O. T. C. and was 
president of Phi Eta Sigma, freshman 
honor society. 

A member of Omicron Delta Kappa, 
men's honorary fraternity, Boswell was one 
of those who presented Lord Halifax, Brit- 
ish Ambassador to this country, when 
that diplomat was tapped at the University 
last spring. Boswell is a member of Pi 
Delta Epsilon, Beta Gamma Sigma, and 
Sigma Chi. 

Two more of the obstacles which 
cadets must encounter in their 
training to he a modern-day sol- 
dier. The obstacle race at the Uni- 
versity is patterned along the lines 
of- those in use at U. S. Army 
camps, and is said to be one of 
the toughest in the country.

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL 

Old Coaches Stay On Job; 
Manders, Halas Added 

Clark Shaughncssy lins expanded Mary 
land's coaching staff without molesting 
those on the job when he came to College 
Park. Al Hcagy and Al Woods will con- 
tinue as aides. Jack Faber also would have 
helped had he not gone into the service 
(as told elsewhere), but Jack Manders 
and \\ 'alter Halas are two notable addi- 

Manders, Minnesota fullback celebrity 
and for nine years a member of the fa- 
mous pro Chicago Bears, is better known, 
but Halas is older and more experienced. 
Both are fitting effectively and agreeably 
into the Maryland picture. 

Manders went with the Chicago Bears 
just after graduating in 1933, starring as 
a back for eight years, during which time 
he set many scoring records, and last fall 
served as assistant coach. 

Native Of South Dakota 

He was born in Milbank, South Dakota, 
on January 13, 1909, and went to Minne- 
sota after playing four years of prep foot- 
ball. He was outstanding for the Gopher 
varsity for three seasons while earning his 
degree in physical education. He is a 
strapping fellow, standing slightly over 
6 feet and scaling a few pounds over 200. 
Manders is married and has two children. 

His skill in kicking field goals and points 
after touchdowns earned him the nick- 
name of "Automatic Jack," his boots 
adding greatly to his fame and giving him 
a number of league records, although he 
also was highly effective as a ball toter 
and defensive back. 

His lifetime record for the pros include 
368 points. 40 field goals, 134 points after 
touchdowns, 72 consecutive points after 


touchdowns, 31 points after touchdowns 
in one season, tied for top honors with 
five points after touchdowns in one game, 
10 field goals in one campaign and 79 
points in one vear. 

Halas An Illinois Product 

Halas, who was graduated from Illinois 
in 1916, for the past 15 years has been 
grid mentor at Drexel Institute in Phila- 
delphia. He's only a little fellow but was 
a three-letter athlete while at Illinois. 

He helped Knute Rockne at Notre 
Dame and was at Mount St. Mary's of 
Maryland for a brief time before going to 

Halas will handle the freshman squad 
where it is vitally important to have an 
experienced mentor. He knows all about 
the T. 

Shipley Is Veteran Tutor 

Burton Shipley, of course, remains as 
head coach of basket ball and baseball, in 
which capacities he has served since the 
1923-24 term. 

Shipley also will coach the Commandos, 
the lightweight football squad that will 
play at least two games. They were not 
to report until September 21. 

Faber's Loss Is Keenly 
Felt In Two Ways 

Dr. Jack Faber, who has gone into the 
U. S. Sanitary Corps as a captain, will be 
greatly missed at Maryland in an athletic 
way and as a bacteriology professor. He 
was to handle the business end of athletics 
and continue as head mentor of lacrosse, 
and both of these jobs will be hard to fill. 

Al Hcagy, Faber's lacrosse aid for years, 
is a highly capable stick mentor, but his 
duties on the football coaching staff would 
make it difficult for him to do both in the 

Highly Rated Scientist 

Despite his prominence in athletics, Fa- 
ber's main position was assistant profes- 
sor of bacteriology and he is highly rated 
in that field. 

Faber made his start at Maryland in 
basket ball in the 1923-24 seasons and 
starred on this sport for three years. He still 
is rated as all-time Maryland basketer. He 
also was a topnotch lacrosse player and 
played fooball as a reserve. 

Faber got his first coaching experience 
in 1927 when he was captain of the la- 
crosse team. He took over the task as well 
as continuing to play when Prof. R. V. 
Truitt, the head coach, was taken ill. He 
assumed the head coaching job of the 
stickmen the next spring and doubtless 
has the best record of any lacrosse mentor 
in the country. Since the national title has 
been in the past seven years recognized by 
the awarding of the Wingate Trophy, 
Faber's teams have won three times, tied 
once and was runner-up another year. 

Always Active In Sports 
Ever since graduating, Faber has done 
some kind of other coaching, with football 
or helping in basket ball. He headed the 
varsity grid staff in 1933, 1934 and 1935 
and again in 1940 1941 and was first as- 
sistant in intervening years. 

Faber got all his three degrees from 
Mankind, his B.S. in 1926, his M.S. in 
1927 and his Ph.D. in 1937. 

Marked Progress Shown 
By Large Grid Squad 

Maryland's football squad, led l>v the 
feeen minded and hard working (Mark 
Bhaughnessy, rapidly is advancing T-ward 
to the opening game of the season with the 
University of Connecticut ;it College Park 
on September 26. 

Duke, V. M. I. and the Georgia Naval 
Pre-Flight School are the toughest nuts 
on the schedule and the List named ap- 
pears above any college outfit with an 
array of professional and collegiate stars. 

Must Overcome Handicaps 

Despite practice sessions being cut to one 
a day by school being in session, with a 
couple of exceptions of Saturdays and 
Labor Day, the Old Liners are making 
marked progress with an attack that should 
bring thrills if not always victory. 

Shaughnessy gets his boys on Tuesday 
and Thursday, too, in pretty tired condi- 
tion from two hours of strenuous mili- 
tary work. 

Five teams and some extras are drilling 
but practically all the first squad talent is 
embraced in two elevens, the Reds and 

First Two Outfits 

They have been lining up as follows: 

REDS — Bob James and Jack Gilmore, 
ends; Jack Dittmar and Reggie Vincent, 
tackles; Eddie Chovanes and Luther Con- 
rad, guards; Paul Flick, center; Tom 
Mont, quarterback; Elmer Rigby and Jack 
Micr. halfbacks; Jack Wright, fullback. 

This is a complete letterman outfit, with 
the exception of Flick, who is a 6-foot 3, 
200-pound soph. 

WHITES — Jack Hufman and Marsh- 
all Brandt, ends; Oscar DuBois and How- 
iard Smedley, tackles; Herb Gunther and

OCTOBER, 1942 



OHE'S just seven years old, she lives at 514 Plum 
Street, her father is plain Bill White. Most people 
notice her pigtails and her blue eyes, but they never 
guess they're in the presence of royalty. 

But we know! 

Maybe that's because we know more about her 
kingdom — the kingdom she'll be queen of one day 
than these people. It's no ordinary kingdom, this it 
combines the best features of all the fairy stories you 
ever read rolled into one. Instead of an ordinary 
marble palace, she'll have a real home made of in- 
expensive materials that you haven't even heard of vet, 
flooded with sunlight, and opening on the whole out- 

Instead of a pumpkin coach, she'll drive a car such 
as you have never dreamed of, and' fly a plane as readily 
as you would drive a car. Plastic shoes will be her 
glass slippers. And her servants will all be electric, for 
electricity, in modern electric appliances for cooking, 
heating, cooling, and cleaning, is just about the best 
servant man has ever had. 

Where is this fairyland? It's right here in America, 

But how can we be sure that this is not just another 
fairy tale? Because American industry has already made 
enough discoveries and developments to reveal to 
us the shape of things to come. New materials like 
plastics, new developments like television, new 
sciences like electronics, assure us of this — and promise 
even more. 

Today's job is fighting for that better world. But 
when tomorrow comes, American industry, once again 
busy producing things to make living better, will help 
to make tomorrow's young men and women more 
truly princes and princesses than the heroes of 
yesterday's fairy tales. General Electric Cvnipaiiy, 
Sclieuectady, N. Y. 

•& -fr -fr 

The volume of General Electric war production is so high and 
the degree of secrecy required is so great that we cannot tell you 
about it now. When it can be told we believe that the story of 
industry's developments during the war years will make one of the 
most fascinating chapters in the history of industrial progress.

Returning Students Find 
War Subjects Emphasized 

Maryland students returning to the Uni- 
versity tins Fall found that many new 
courses had been added to the curricu- 
lum and that much of the content of the 
old courses had been given a "war-time 

War Is Topic 

One of the new courses being offered 
this fall will be "Psychological Problems 
of the War Situation." According to Dr. 
Weston R. Clark. Acting Head of the Psy- 
chology Department, this course will crit- 
ically examine and present the various psy- 
chological problems which result from the 
feelings and reactions of a people during 
war time. The effect of propaganda upon 
a nation in changing its attitude towards 
another countrv will be studied extensively. 

An advanced class in psychology will 
make a study of the subject "Psychology 
of a Child in Modern War." Just what 
the effect of blackouts and bombings will 
be upon children separated from their 
parents for long periods of time will be 
studied and investigated. This same class 
will also study the attitudes and impres- 
sions that are being gained by preschool 
children whose parents are employed in 
war industries and who are left at home 
without any type of adult supervision. 
Studies In Personnel 

Another course in "Personnel", in ad- 
dition to dealing with psychological prob- 
lems involved in the management of per- 
sonnel in modern industry and business, 
will study the methods and techniques by 
which the armed services classify men for 
various branches, according to their abili- 
ties and previous jobs. It will also study 
the importance of morale in securing the 
maximum efficiency from new men in the 

A graduate seminar will deal with the 
psychology of morale in war time, with 
particular emphasis on civilian problems. 
Much of the content of other psychology 
courses have been changed to meet new 
war conditions and problems. 

In the Department of Modern Lan- 
guages a number of new languages have 
been added because of their importance in 
the present world conflict. These include 
Russian. Chinese and Portuguese, accord- 
ing to Dr. Adolf Zucker, Chairman of the 
Department. Dr. Albert B. Franklin, newly 
appointed Associate Professor in the De- 
partment, who has spent much time in 

South America, will conduct the class in 
Portuguese. He will also teach courses in 
South American Literature and Culture. 
Chinese Will Be Taughr 
The Mandarin dialect, which is the of- 
ficial tongue of China, will be taught to 
students who are particularly interested in 
the Far East. In addition, the language 
department will emphasize the importance 
of Spanish, while continuing to teach Ger- 
man. French, Italian. Greek and Latin. 

The Political Science Department of 
the University has also set up a number of 
new courses. One course will seek to ana- 
lyze problems connected with the national 
war program and their impact upon state 
and local governments. Special emphasis 
will be placed upon war financing, political 
leadership, control of public opinion, main- 
tenance of morale, government policy to- 
ward business, labor, agriculture, and the 
effect of a war economy upon future dem- 
ocratic processes. 

Another course, "Civilian Military Re- 
lations in the United States," will include 
a survey of the legal rights and duties of 
a state under international law and the po- 
sition of neutral and non-belligerent na- 
tions. The class will also give considera- 
tion to the legal position of the citizen in 
relation to the military during war time, 
the status of enemy aliens, and of domestic 
and alien enemy property, martial law and 
military law. 

Elementary Teacher Training 

In the College of Education, Dr. Doug- 
las E. Lawson, newly appointed Associate 
Professor of Education, will offer the first 
courses for training elementary school 
teachers ever to be given by the University. 
Prior to this fall, only the three normal 
schools at Towson, Salisbury and Frostburg 
had facilities for such instruction. In addi- 
tion, the University of Maryland will con- 
tinue to offer courses for high school

Maryland Alumnus Tells 
Of Interesting Army Job 

J. Newton Cox, '40. writes that he is 
now located at Camp Croft, South Caro- 
lina, at an infantry replacement center. 
His particular job, or perhaps we should 
say jobs, is morale officer, recreation offi- 
cer and athletic officer, all rolled into one. 
Cox is in charge of the athletics, recreation 
and morale of about 1 500 men, and he 
says that it is just the job that he has al- 
ways wanted. He has been instrumental in 
forming boxing, baseball, Softball, volley- 
ball, horseshoe and swimming teams. 

Before going to Camp Croft Cox was 
located at one of the eastern camps where 
he was instructor in "pioneering." Pio- 
neering, he says, is very much like com- 
mando training and includes instruction 
in barbed wire entanglements, demolition 
of bridges, construction of field fortifica- 
tions, etc. 

Cox says that he is very grateful for the 
training he received in athletics and engi- 
neering at the University of Maryland. 
He points out that this experience has 
greatly assisted him in coaching the various 
teams that now come under his supervision. 

Doug Steinberg Makes 
Good Record In Army 

Douglas Steinberg, '40. a graduate of the 
College of Commerce, has been making a 
splendid record since leasing the Univer- 
sity, and only recently was commissioned 
a second lieutenant at the graduation ex- 
ercises of the Chemical Warfare Service 
Officer Candidate School at Edgewood 
Arsenal, Maryland. 

Prior to enlisting in the Army as a 
Private in 1941, Doug was assistant traffic 
manager for the Newport News Shipbuild- 
ing and Drydock Company. Following en- 
listment he rose through every enlisted 
grade to the highest, that of Master Ser- 
geant, all in sixteen months. 

Doug took an active part in his college 
life and was president of Sigma Phi Sigma, 
now Sigma Chi fraternity. He was also 
business manager of the Diamoiidback and 
a member of Omicron Delta Kappa and 
Phi Delta l'.psilon, as well as a member of 
the Yearbook staff. 

Doug is the son of Dean S. S. Steinberg 
of the University College of Engineering.

breath, '42; W. H. Schoenhaar, '42 and

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 

Old Liners Face Hurdle 
After Three Victories 

Maryland's football, which took its first 
three games in impressive fashion, was 
about to plunge into its first big test of the 
season when this was written. 

This tremendous hurdle was V. M. I., 
which was to be met in the first Southern 
Conference game under Clark Shaugh- 
nessy, and the Cadets rated about even 
favorites with Duke to earn- off the loop 

It was a crucial game in more ways 
than one, as the teams in their long series, 
which was begun back in 1906, stand all 
even. Each has won nine times with a 
pair being deadlocks. 

Mont Good General 

Maryland, with Tommy Mont doing 
ace work as a general and passer, got one 
scare in its first three games. Connecticut 
and Lakehurst Naval Air Station were 
taken handily, 34-0 and 140, respectively 
in tilts at College Park, but Rutgers proved 
a stubborn foe for the first half in a clash 
decided in the Baltimore Stadium. 

In fact, Rutgers, through a brilliant run- 
back of the opening kick-off for 97 yards 
by Hal Connors, got seven points that kept 
the Maryland rooters jittery for a time. 

However, Shaughnessy got hold of his 
boys betwen the halves, got them straight- 
ened out of some technical matters and 
helped them regain their poise, and they 
went to town right after the start of the 
second half, scoring three touchdowns in 
the third period and finally winning, 27-7. 

Short Of Reserves 

Despite the fine start, Shaughnessy is 
having trouble finding the needed line re- 
serves and this may cause trouble when 
some team with superior second-string 
strength is battled. This appeared to be the 
case in the game with V. M. I. 

Maryland has three more games in 
which the "home" fans can take a peek 
at the flashy "T" stuff. Western Maryland 
will be met in Baltimore on October 24 in 

a game in which the Terrors are hosts, 
Florida will be played in Griffith Stadium 
m Washington the following week, and 
homecoming will be celebrated when

Flick, center; George Jarmoska, right guard; 
Luther Conrad, right tackle; Jack Gilmore,

George Barnes, Bill Helbock and Andrew 
Schnebley, backs; Bill Byrd, center; Tony 
Nardo, guard; Reggy Vincent and Oscar 
DuBois, tackles; Jack Hufman and Danny

Home State Grid Stars 
Shine In Baltimore 

Home State gridmen shone brightly as 
Maryland licked Rutgers in Baltimore on 
October 10th, 27-13. 

Quarterback Tommy Mont of Cumber- 
land and Fullback Jack Wright, Halfback 
Elmer Rigby, Tackle Jack Dittmar and 
Guard Tony Nardo, all of Baltimore, gave 
the homefolks a treat. 

Mont and Wright were the big guns but 
the others played standout football. 

Nardo, incidentally, started his first 
game and, although scaling 175 pounds, 
fully held his own. 

Terrors Oldest Rivals 
Of Old Line Eleven 

Maryland will be playing the oldest rival 
still on its schedule when it meets Western 
Maryland in the Baltimore Stadium on 
October 24. 

The Terrors were first met in 1893. This 
was a year after football relations were be- 
gun with Johns Hopkins and St. John's, 
but the Old Liners do not meet the Blue 
Jays now and the Johnnies are completely 
out of athletics. 

The Terrors and Old Liners have faced 
31 times, with Manland holding an 18-to- 
12 edge in victories with one tie, a 6-to-6 
game last Fall. 

Here are the past scores: 

1893— M. A. C... 18; Western Maryland 10

Frosh Squad Promising; 
Has Veteran Mentor 

Maryland*s freshman squad, which is 
being coached by Walter Halas, who was 
head mentor at Drexel Institute for 16 
years, appears to be better than the aver- 
age at College Park. 

More will be known after October 16 
when the rookies play their first game of 
the season against the V. M. I. yearlings 
at College Park. 

Max Hunt, varsity lineman last year, is 
helping Halas. 

Mont, Wright Are Among 
Nations Top Gainers 

Quarterback Tommy Mont and Full- 
back Jack Wright were among the leading 
ground gainers in the country for the first 
three Maryland games, the former in pass 
ing and the latter in running. 

Mont was a little short of his previous 
two contests in the Rutgers game in Bal- 
timore on October 10 but did well enough. 

Mont tried to conned through the air 
on 22 occasions and made goo.l on just 
half of them for 135 yards against Rutgers. 
This brought his record to 23 completions 
in 45 attempts for a total of 460 yards. 

While Mont was holding up the aerial 
harrage against Rutgers, Jack Wright, 206- 
pound fullback, was setting a fast pace on 
the ground. Wright carried the ball 21 
times against Rutgers and got a net ag- 
gregate of 138 yards. He had made a total 
of 89 yards in 1 3 plays in the defeats of 
Connecticut and Lakehurst Naval Air 
Station, so his total for three tilts is 227, 
an average of 6.3 per try. 

Summer Lacrosse Outfit 
Shows Great Power 

Maryland's lacrosse team, which swept 
a four-game Summer card when it beat 
j Navy at Annapolis, 9-2, doubtless was the 
best balanced combination that has been 
at College Park in years. Hopkins was 
beaten twice, 8-1 and 8-0, and Penn State 
| walloped, 13-0. 

An array of regular season vets was bol- 

| stered by five outstanding sophs, Howard 

', Smedley, John Ruppersbergcr, and Lloyd 

Mallonee on defense, and Otts Lundvall 

and Snuffy Smith on attack. All are Bal- 


Milt VandenBerg, with 1 1 goals, and 
Ray Grelecki, with 10, led the Summer 



Bill Helbock, football fullback and hurd- 
ler on the track team, has been elected 
president of the Junior Class at Maryland. 
He succeeds Bamett Broughton, lacrosse 
| goalie, who left Marvland to enter West 

Nine Gains Even Break 
In Summer League 

Herb Cunther, football back and light 
heavy boxer, proved the sparkplug of 
Maryland's last five games in the Summei 
Baseball League, His catching and throw 
ing were exceptional and he hit about 

Maryland tied with Navy and George 
Washington foi second place with .in 
even break in eight games. 

Georgetown swept its schedule to take 
the title. 

Jimmy Kinsman, who came to Maryland 
from nearby Bcthcsda Chevy Chase High, 
appears to be the shortstop in the making 
for Coach Burton Shipley. He has devel- 
oped into a clever fielder and thrower and 
is hitting fairly well. He didn't try for the 
Frosh nine in 1941 but during the regular 
1942 season he won his letter as a utility 

Hodgins, Jr., '41, recently became an Army- 
Aviation Cadet and will undergo a pre-

ation Cadet Hodgins was a junior engineer

Students And Faculty 
Support Blood Drive 

Milking use of the first mobile blootl 
donation unit to be used on a college C im 
pus, H6il students and faculh of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland gave one pint of blood 
each in <i Blood Donor Drive, held at Col 
lege Park from November 2 to 11. 

The project was under the direct super- 
vision of the Student Victory Council of 
the University and was directed by the 
Baltimore Unit of the Army and Navy 
Blood Donoi Service of the American Red 
Cross. William Krahnbrink, of Baltimore, 
and Dr. Roger B. Corbett, Director of the 
University Experiment Station, are stu- 
dent and faculty chairmen, respectively, of 
the Victory Council. Five hundred and 
fifty students offered blood but 90 were 
turned down foi \arions physic d reasons. 

Dr. Waul Bnt'.gs, of Baltimore, who was 
in charge of the (ethnical aspects of the 
drive, praised the fine, cooperative spirit of 
the faculty and students. Those who gave 
blood were served with sandwiches and 
milk by the Canteen Service of the Amer- 
ican Red Cross. 

At the close of each day of the drive 
the blood was removed to the Baltimore 
Red Cross Center and then shipped to 
the Sharp and Dolunc Laboratories at 
Clcnoldcn, Pa. Within twenty-four hours 
the plasma was separated from the blood. 
This plasma is then frozen by drj ice and 
alcohol and. by means of a vacuum, made 
into a powder. Supervision of the trans 
formation of the blood into powdered 
plasma is under the direction of the Army.

ing bad originally been scheduled for No-

change this at the last minute because of 
certain conflicts. A letter, giving full de- 
tails of the day's program, has been sent 
to all Alumni and it is hoped that every- 
one who can possibly do so will make a 
special effort to come back and make the 
day a real success. 

Football Game Is Iliyhlight 
One of the highlights of the day's sched- 
ule will be the football game between 
Maryland's Old Liners and Washington 
and Lee University. This promises to be 
a bang-up good game and will give many 
Maryland Alumni their first opportunity 
to sec the new Shaughnessy-coachcd team 
in action. In spite of two set-backs this 
season the Maryland team has shown 
great improvement over the last few years 
and can always be counted upon to provide 
plenty of thrills and action for the on- 

American caliber. 

The program foi the day starts with a 
luncheon in the University Dining 1 1. ill 

at 12:30 with a short business meeting 
following. R. M. (Bunt) Watkins, new 
president of the Alumni Association, will 
preside at this meeting which, among other 
matters, vvili have to replace vacancies in 
the office of secretary and treasurer.

rally on Friday evening. During the halves 
of the football game the students will pre- 
sent the traditional parade of Baits which 
will depict the activities of the student 
body in relation to the war effort during

Sports Reduced To Four 
For Duration Of War 

Maryland will get along with four 
sports — football, basket ball, boxing 
and lacrosse — for the duration and if 
it is able to continue all these it will be 
fortunate. There will be varsity and fresh- 
man teams in these pastimes. 

This decision was reached by the Ath- 
letic Board and announced by Clark 
Shauglmcssy, Athletic Director and head 
of the Physical Education .Department. 
Football virtually will be an all-year prop- 
osition. The griddcrs will see action as 
long as the weather permits. 

While increasing transportation difficul- 
ties figured strongly in the decision, the 
determining factor was to concentrate on 
pastimes best fitting the military setup. 
Six Sports Suspended 

Cone by the board arc" varsity and fresh- 
man combinations in baseball, track, wrest- 
ling, tennis, cross country, soccer and golf. 
They will be suspended until it is practical 
to resume. 

There now arc more than 200 players in 
football uniforms at the University, in- 
cluding the varsity, junior varsity, fresh- 
man and commando squads. Basket ball 
and boxing arc about to get under way. 

Football equipment being used by the 
regular teams is to be turned over to other 
players just as soon as schedules arc com- 

Among the events planned is a football 
round robin among the companies of the 
R. O. T. C. Regiment, which includes 
about 1,500 men. After they have finished, 
it won't be long before Spring drills begin 

Boxing Coach Needed 

Burton Shipley will be at the helm again 
in basket ball, but no coach has been ob- 
tained to replace Bobby Coklstcin, boxing 
mentor, who now is a lieutenant in the 

Shaughnersv regards lacrosse as one of 
the finest means of physical development 
and said the military and physical educa- 

Old Liners and W. and L. 
Provide Hot Struggles 

Old grads should witness a spiiy home- 
coming game on November 21 it the Old 
Liners and Washington and Lee arc in 

the same mood as they base been dining 
the past two years. 

Probably no other game has been staged 
at College Park that produced the finish- 
ing thrills as that of 1910 when Maryland 
marched 9S yards to a score in the last 
four minutes to get a 7-7 tic. 

Then again last Fall, in the Baltimore 
Stadium, the teams put on a hot duel in 
which the Old Liners gained the upper 
hand, 6 to 0. 

In fact, most of the past 16 games have 
been close with only two really big scores 
being rolled up. Maryland holds a good 
edge in the scries, begun in 192-1, and has 
won nine games against five defeats and 
two tics. 

Here arc the past scores:

Jack Faber, head lacrosse mentor, now 
is a captain in the U. S*. Sanitary Corps, 
but Al Ileagy, his aide for many years, is 
available. Heagy is an assistant varsity foot- 
ball coach. 

Maryland has good facilities now for its 
basket ball and boxing programs in Ritchie 
Coliseum and the Gym-Armory and a 
huge new armory is due to be finished next 
Februarv 1.

football will be continued indefinitely, 
with the R. O. T. C. companies taking 
over for a round-robin series. 

Gridmen Are Doing O. K. 
With Two Games Left 

The varsity footballers had won 5 of 7 
games and were priming for the final two, 
the Virginia tilt at Charlottesville on No 
\cinbcr 14 and the Washington and Etc 
Homecoming affair at College Park a week 
liter, when this was written. 

Washington and Lee originally was 
slated for November 28 but the game was 
put forward a week when both had an 
open date. The Cavaliers appealed to be 
a big hurdle with the chances about even, 
but the Old Liners were rated heavy fj- 
voritcs over the Generals. 

Man land's record to date, an excellent 
one considering the Old Line material and 
the class of the opposition, was 

Maryland, 34; Connecticut, 

Mankind, 14; Lalcehurst N. A. S., 

Maryland, 27; Rutgers, 13 

Maryland, 0; V. M. I., 29 

Maryland, 51; Western Maryland, 

Maryland, 13; Florida, 

Maryland, 0; Duke, 42. 

A killing trip of ] 5 hours during the 
flood in October ruined the Old Liners on 
their trip to V. M. 1. and they simply 
played poor football against Duke. Their 
victory over Florida was an upset while 
!lic defeats of Rutgers and Western Mary- 
land were reversals from 1941. Last year 
Rutgers beat Maryland, 20 to 0, and West- 
"n Maiyland surprised with a 6 6 tic. 

Even if Maryland should only break 
Wen in its last two games it will have been 
•' good season with twice as many victories 
;i "> last year with not as good material as 
«' 1941.

Captain Ralph I. Williams 
Leaves For Foreign Service 

The University of Maryland bid fare- 
well recently to one of its most popular 
and outstanding Alumni and officials. This 
was Captain Ralph I. Williams, of the 
University Military Department, who left 
for foreign service with the U. S. Army- 
Air Corps. 

Captain Williams has been an especially 
active and ardent worker on the campus 
and his presence will be missed by many. 
Although only 31 years of age he had at 
various times held the positions of dra- 
matic coach, instructor in speech, head of 
the department of publications, assistant 
dean of men, and acting dean of men. 
Except for the one year, 1934-35, when he 
was associated with the Dupont Rayon 
Company, of Richmond, Va., he served 
continuously on the faculty since he 
graduated in 1933. 

As an undergraduate at Mankind Ralph 
was president of the Student Government 
Association, president of Footlight Club, 
vice-president of Omicron Delta Kappa, 
and treasurer of Theta Chi. After re- 
ceiving his bachelor's degree in economics 
he took graduate work at Maryland and 
Columbia. Later he attended Georgetown 
University Law School. 


Class Of 1910 To Establish 
Alcove Of History Books 

The members of the Class of 1910 have 
started a project to establish an alcove on 
Mankind history which will be placed in 
the University library. A committee, head 
cd by S. S. Stabler, has been appointed by 
Judge William P. Cole, president of the 
class, to work on the project. Other mem

Homecoming Brings Large Group of Alumni 
Back To Alma Mater For Day 

w ii .ind the m.un difficulties "l travel, .1 sui 
enthusiastic group of \lmnm came ba< k to the 

In spite of the 
prisingly large and 
University for what ma) have been the last Homecoming Daj .it 
College Park for the duration of the war. More than a hundred 
Alumni registered in the main lobby of the Administration 
Building before luncheon and this numbei had doubled by the 
time the whistle blew for the kick-off of the Maryland Washing 
1 ton and Lee football game. 

The day was a perfect one for a Homecoming gathering and 

the Alumni spent most of the morning roaming around the 1 im 

'pus, renewing old friendships and watching a livelj soccei game 

'between the coeds and Alumni. The game was played On the held 

baek of the girls' Field House and was won by the Alumni by 

a score of 2 to 1 . 

Luncheon In Dining Hall 

Immediately following the soccei game a verj enjoyable lunch 
eon was held in the University Dining Hall. This was presided 
over by Bunt Watkins, '21. new president of the Alumni Associa 
tion, who proved a most genial host for the occasion. Brief .«.\ 
dresses were made during the luncheon b) President II. C. Byrd, 
'08, and Clark Shaughnessy, new football coach at the Universit) 
and head of the department of physical education. Among other 
things Dr. Byrd pointed out the need for reorganizing the work 
of the Alumni Association and stated that he hoped to present 
sonic constructive suggestions for such a reorganization in the 
near future. 

Cobey Is Secretary 

The only important business taken up at the meeting, held at 
the close of the luncheon, was to elect William W. Cobey, '30, 
as the new secretary of the Alumni Association. Mr. Cobey is a 
member of the financial department of the University and lives at 
University Park. 

The football game with Washington and Lee provided all of 
the color, thrills and suspense that any grad could desire. In spite 
of the fact that the Generals entered the game very much the 
underdog they showed amazing power, especially in the second 
half, and it was only after one of the hardest battles of the season 
that the Old Liners were able 
to end the game with a score of 
32-28. Maryland closed its most 
successful season in five years, 
having lost only two games out 
of nine. 

Pageant Is Impressive 

A colorful and impressive 
pageant was put on by the stu- 
dents at halftime. This included 
music by the University Band 
and Glee Club and a parade of 
floats depicting war-time theme, 
which was followed by a stirring 
address on Maryland's war ac- 
tivities by Ray Grelecki, pres- 
ident of the Student Govern- 
ment Association, and a prayer 
for the men in the service by 
the Reverend Nathaniel C. Ac- 
Ion, of St. Andrew's Episcopal 
Church, College Park.

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 

Shaughnessy Does Great 
Job With Football Team 

Maryland's football team responded to 
the masterful coaching of Clark Shaugh- 
nessy and his "T" set up in his first year 
at College Park to put on a great offensive 
show and to win seven of nine games, for 
its best record m the past five seasons. It 
was a remarkable showing, all things con- 

With material that, as a whole, was 20 
percent below the usual Maryland stand- 
ard, particularly a., to linemen, Shaugh- 
nessy built up a powerful attacking com- 

In compiling their notable record, the 
Old Liners beat two teams over which they 
were given a good pre-season edge — Con- 
necticut and Western Maryland; whipped 
five in which they were rated on a 50-50 
basis — Lakehurst Naval Air Station, Rut- 
gers, Florida, Virginia and Washington 
and Lee ■ — and lost to two that were ad- 
mitted to have a big margin on them — 
V. M. I. and Duke. 

Scores of the games were: 

Maryland, 34; Connecticut, 0. 

Maryland, 14; Lakehurst, 0. 

Maryland, 27; Rutgers, 13. 

Maryland, 0; V. M. I., 29. 

Maryland, 51; Western Maryland, 0. 

Maryland. 13; Florida. 0. 

Maryland, 0; Duke, 42. 

Maryland, 27; Virginia, 12. 

Maryland, 32; Washington and Lee, 28. 
Shaughnessy not only is a great football 
coach and handler of boys, but he's the 
right man to direct Maryland's athletic and 
physical education program. He knows 
how to cooperate, never grumbles about 
material or conditions but just goes ahead 
and docs a 100 percent job with what he 
has at hand.

otherwise stated)

Old Line Eleven 11th In Nation In Total Offense; 
Mont Is 5th Among Passers With 1,076 Yards 

Maryland's football team and Quarter- 
back Tommy Mont were high up among 
the Nation's leaders on offense during the 
past season, figures from the American 
Football Statistical Bureau show. 

The Old Line eleven was eleventh in 
total offense with 2,758 yards, about 
equally divided between running and pass- 
ing, for an average of 308.3 yards per 
game. This put Maryland ahead of such 
notable outfits as Tennesse, Vanderbilt 
and Great Lakes. 

Mont was eighth among the passers in 
average completions with a percentage of 
.520, connecting on 66 shots out of 127. 
However, he was fifth in total yardage with 
1,076, only Governali of Columbia, S'ink- 
wich of Georgia, Evans of Kansas and Gra- 
ham of Northwestern leading him in the 
latter respect. Graham topped him by just 
16 yards and Mont was only 10 in front 
of Dobbs of Tulsa. 

Maryland's team averaged 151.8 yards 
per game in aerials and trailed only Tulsa, 
Georgia, Columbia and Creighton. Mary- 
land's running average was 155.3 yards per 
game and none of the first 15 averaged 
below 200. 

Many Stars To Be Lost 
Whether Mont will play any football 
next Fall is problematical. He is a junior 
but under the stepped-up program of three 
semesters a year instead of two, he will be 
graduated about next October 10 with an 
R. O. T. C. reserve commission rating. 
This would allow him, as well as the other 
juniors on the football squad, to be on 
hand for only three games. 

Included in this category are Bob James, 
end; Jack Dittmar, tackle; Tony Nardo, 
guard; Jack Wright, Bill Helbock, George 
Barnes, and Jack Brenner, backs. 

Seniors who finish at the end of the pres- 
ent semester in February are: Jack Gil 
more, end; Luther Conrad and Rcggy Vin- 
cent, tackles; George Jarmoska, guard; and 

Elmer Rigby, Jack Mier, Joe Hoopen- 
gardner and Lou Chacos, backs. 

Conrad is colonel of the R. O. T. C. 
regiment and Gilmore and Vincent are lieu- I 
tenant colonels. 

Mont's Value Exemplified 

Mont's value to the Maryland team, 
and what might have happened to it dur- ; 
ing the season without him, was exempli- 
fied in the 32-28 triumph over Washing- ' 
ton and Lee in the Old Liners finale. 
With Mont running the machine, Mary- 
land scored three times in nine minutes, 
marching to touchdowns each time it got 
its hands on the ball. 

When he went out late in the first 
quarter, Washington and Lee soon got a 
touchdown, although Maryland was in pos- 
session of the ball on its own 30-yard line 
when he was relieved. Maryland then pro- 
ceeded to lose about 10 yards on three 
plays and to have a kick blocked to give 
the Generals their first marker. Mont came 
back in the second quarter and tossed for 
a touchdown to make the score 26-7, at 
the half, and also engineered Maryland's 
final score. 

A pop-up fumble that set up a 70-yard 
run and two long passes gave Washington 
and Lee its other three scores in the last 
half to make the game close and exciting, 
but fans are wondering just what the 
count might have been had Mont stayed 
at the helm constantly in the first half 
and kept the Old Liners rolling instead of 


Ennis is Marine Major 

Lou Ennis, former Maryland athlete, 
who was all State and all-D. C. area foot- 
ball end in 1935 and all-America defense 
player in lacrosse in 1936, is a major in 
the Marine Corps on duty in Guadalcanal. 

He was graduated from Maryland in the 
class of '36. 

Quigley, In Double Role, 
Has Boxing Problems 

George D. Quigley, associate professor 
of i oultiy husbandry and professor of box 
ing at Maryland, is worrying more about 
fhe Old Line ring team than whether his 
liens will lay the eggs expected of them. 
Huigley has the fowl situation pretty well 
under control but he is dubious about the 
ability of his scrappers to lay on enough 
WDves to make a respectable record in the 
Seven matches during the 1945 season. 

Quigley, while hunting for a coach, is 
both faculty advisor of the fistic pastime 
land mentor, and is carrying a crying towel 
on each arm. He may toss these away ami 
consider his prospects much brighter once 
he finds a regular tutor. 

Stars Go In February 

Maryland should be fairly well off for 
the first four bouts, which come in the 
present semester ending early in February, 
but after that the sledding appears ex 
trcmcly rough. Judson Lincoln, 12"; Tom 
Jones, 135; Jack Gilmore, 165, and Herb 
Gunther, 175, form the nucleus of the 
jteam. All except Jones, who won six bouts 
yind drew one in the regular season, were 
finalists in the Eastern Intercollegiate tour- 
ney which the Old Liners won at Char- 
lottesville last March. 
i Jones, though, is the only fighter who 
will be available for the full season, as the 
other three will go out with the February 
ilass and into the service of Uncle Sam. 
JA.11 arc officers in the R. O. T. C. regi- 
,ment, with Gilmore being a lieutenant 


Cicala In Dental School 

Filling the other classes — 120, 145. 
[155 and heavy — offer plcntv of problems 
how and the job will be herculean after 
Lincoln, Gilmore, and Gunther go. 

Joe Cicala, who fought at 120 last year, 
now is in the Dental School in Baltimore 
Bad lost to competition and Heavyweight 
t,en Rodman, who commuted from the 
Pharmacy School i:. the Monumental City 
5n 1942, doesn't intend to box this season. 

Quigley has more than 20 working out 
ut most of them are rookies.

Seven Basketers Provide

Next in line comes Eddie Bait/, forward. 
and Don Schuerholz, guards, with the 
other five on the squad liming to battle 
for recognition. 

Mont, James, Travis, Bait/, and Schuer- 
holz arc 1941 42 lettermen, Mick and Huf- 
man arc sophs and Kinsman and Horn 
have figured in a few varsity games. 

These nine will average nearly 6 feet 1 
inch in height, Travis and Flick standing 
6 feet 5, and 178 pounds in weight. 
Schuerholz is the shorty at 5 feet 10 and 
Horn is the lightest at 15 5. 

Travis, who scales 195 pounds, set a 
scoring record for the District of Columbia 
area last season with 5 2" points in 22 
games, and Mont, a 6 foot, 1S6 pounder, 
rang up ISO. Their total of 507 was 63 
percent of the points gathered by the Old 
Liners, as only 297 were registered by a

Silvester Making Name 
With "Lucky Seventh" 

Major General Lindsey Silvester, who 
graduated from Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege in 1911, is making a name for himself 
as commander of the Seventh Armored 

Since the "Lucky Seventh" was activated 
under his leadership last March, it has en- 
rolled 663 men in officer candidate schools 
throughout the country. At present, it is 
aiding in the training of the Eleventh Ar- 
mored Division, which obtained main of 
its officers from within the "Seventh." 

General Silvester was commissioned a 
second lieutenant in the infantry in 1911. 
upon graduation; and since then he has 
had a distinguished background in the 
service. He served on the European front 
during the first World War, and was 
given the Distinguished Sen-ice Cross and 
the Silver Star for extraordinary heroism 
in action. Since then, he has also served 
in Hawaii. 

In 1916, he participated in the Mex- 
ican Expedition under General John Per- 
shing. A graduate of the Army War Col- 
lege, he served for two years on the In- 
fantry Board at Fort Benning, Georgia. 

Austin C. Diggs Joins Life 
Insurance Company 

Austin C. Diggs, '21, vice-president of 
the Alumni Association, is now associated 
with the estate planning and tax division 
of the Connecticut General Life Insurance 
Company with offices in the Calvert Build- 
ing in Baltimore. For some years he has 
been associated with a number of New 
York Stock Exchange houses. 

His new work is of a highly technical 
nature and thus far has been instituted in 
only a few of the sixty offices of the Com- 
pany. Estate planning is the answer to a 
need for constructive analysis of individual 
and corporate holdings which effect tax- 
savings, estate conservation and manage- 
ment. The work involves a rearrangement 
and coordination of estate assets, life in 
surance, etc., in conformity with present 
tax laws. 

J. A. Butts/22, Awarded Westinghouse * c Mili :7 Ar " 
Order of Merit For Part in War Effort 


John A. Butts, '22, manager of the Small De ion Breaker Department of the Wesl 
inghonse Company was one of four Westinghouse employees who received the Ordei 
of Merit of that company at a ceremony held recently at the company's East Pittsburgh 


Given Medal 

The men were picsentcd with a citation 
of honor and a hron/.e medal bearing a sil- 
ver "W" and the inscription "whom his 
fellow men delight to honor." The award 
was made by A. W. Robertson, chairman 
of the Board of Westinghouse Electric 
and Manufacturing Company. 

The awards were made in recognition 
of ability to keep electric equipment mov- 
ing to war plants. All four men have been 
concerned with supplying the United States 
Navy with circuit breakers, switchboards 
and other apparatus for controlling the flow 
of electricity aboard naval vessels and at 
shore establishments. In addition, they 
help in getting similar equipment to new 
war plants and to industries which ex- 
panded or converted their electrical svs 
terns to war production. 

Mr. Butts was given the Order of Merit 
Medal "for his vision in foreseeing the 
demand for planning and earning through 
the development of superior small de-ion 
circuit breakers and panel boards; and for 
his thorough knowledge of the market for 
that product." 

Since graduation from the University 
with the Degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Electrical Engineering, Mr. Butts has been 
with Westinghouse with the exception of 
18 months which he spent installing an 
underground low-voltage network system 
in Havana, Cuba, for an American utility 
firm. He was born in Altoona, where he 
attended elementary and high schools. He 
is now living at 18 Holland Road. Wilkens-

Jl/tasuflcutd Students Soon ^a BtoadccUt 

Ptoala+nA. tf-iatn &w*i Station @*t GamfLuA 

If present plans materialize students at 
the University of Man land will soon be 
listening to radio programs which will be 
sent out from their own broadcasting sta- 
tion, located on the campus at College 
Park. Broadcasting will begin sometime 
during the month of January, it was an- 
nounced bv Gilbert Cullins of Baltimore, 
a senior in the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences, who is president of the Old Line 

Meets Approval 

Having met with final approval by au- 
thorities of the University present plans 
of the network call for one-hour programs, 
both in the afternoon and evening, five 
days a week. Programs for week-day morn- 
ings have not been established definitely. 
but there will probably be a Sunday mom 
ing broadcast. The station will be within 
the range of any standard radio on the col- 
lege campus. 

George F. Corcoran, head of the Elec- 
trical Engineering Department of the Uni- 
versity, supervised installation of the equip- 
ment. The work of erecting the technical 
equipment was performed by the students 
who will also assume the task of producing 
the programs. The programs will be under 
the direct supervision of the Speech De- 
partment of the University. 

Work was held up on the project be- 
cause of priority difficulties and it was only 

through the donations of student "ham 
operators" that the work was completed. 

Receive Aid 

The students were aided in establishing 
the network by Ccorgc Abraham, a 1940 
graduate of Brown University and the head 
of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, 
who donated enough equipment to get the 
Old Line Network on a working basis. It 
was through Mr. Abraham's work that 
most of the technical difficulties of the 
station were solved. 

Since the federal Communications 
Commission prohibits broadcasting over 
the air without a license, the Old Line 
Network will transmit its programs through 
the wires of the campus lighting system. 
Another FCC rule which limits stations 
broadcasting by wire to within three hun- 
dred feet of their own property, makes it 
doubtful whether off campus fraternity 
and sorority houses will be able to receive 
the broadcasts. 

Joins System 

The University radio svstem will be a 
member of the Intercollegiate Broadcast 
ing Svstem, central agency of all college 
stations. Once a week, the network spon- 
sors an hour program, emanating in turn 
from each of its college member stations, 
and featuring prominent national figures.

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Campagna Is Signed As 
University Boxing Coach 

Thomas Campagna. Chicago Boys' Club 
instructor, has been signed to serve as 
boxing coach at Maryland, and will be- 
come the first full-time boxing instructor 
in the history of the school. He succeeds 
Bobby Goldstein, now serving in the 
armed forces. 

Campagna, 30 years old, won fame in 
Chicago in the Golden Gloves ranks for 
five years w r here he finished in the semi- 
finals twice. For the past several years he 
has directed the boxing teams at Lawson 
YMCA, largest in Chicago, and the Un- 
ion League Boys' Club there. 

The new coach comes to Maryland with 
experience in handling large numbers of 
boys. In collaboration with Captain Bohler 
of the Military Department, Campagna is 
going to instruct the fundamentals of box- 
ing every evening. This instruction will be 
given to those who have never boxed be- 
fore. A different group will be taken each 
evening in order to instruct as many as 
possible. This plan will soon be announced 
in full detail, and it will be only on a vol- 
untary basis. , 

The class will be divided into three dis- 
tinct groups for the puropses of boxing. 
The boxers will be put in one of these, ac- 
cording to their ability; the groups are be- 
ginners, novices and seniors. This plan 
will take care of some of the boys not able 
to compete in the physical fitness program 
because of inadequate facilities. 

Herb Gunther, battler in the 175-pound 
class, who handled the squad before a 
coach was secured will help instruct the 
freshman class. 

Wright Leads Maryland 
Scorers With 48 Points 

Jack Wright, husky junior fullback from 
Baltimore, led the Old Line gridders in 
scoring for the season with 48 points, but 
14 in all figured in rolling up the 198- 
point total, ten backs and four ends. 

Ilubey Werner, a fine sophomore back, 
was second with 42 points; and Jack Mier, 
a senior ball toter, third, with 24. 

Quarterback Tommy Mont booted 16 
extra points in 26 attempts after Mary- 
land's 30 touchdowns and Jack Hufman, 
a soph end, kicked a pair. Jack Mier, a 
back, missed the other two. 

Bill Hottel Retires From 
Sports Publicity Post 

As some of you turn to the sports page 
in this issue of the News you will notice 
that the name of William H. (Bill) Hottel 
no longer appears under the title of Old 
Line Athletic Contributions. We are sorry 
to admit this is not an error but is caused 
by the fact that Bill, familiar to Maryland 
graduates and Old Line sports fans for 
nearly a quarter of a century, has retired 
as athletic publicity director for the Uni- 

Bill's loss to the University is a real one. 
Outside of President Byrd himself there is 
probably no one who has worked harder, 
more unstintingly, or more loyally for the 
Old Line institution. We think the editor 
of the Diamondback expressed himself 
very well when he said in the December 31 
issue of that paper: "The University owes 
Bill Hottel a tremendous debt of grati- 
tude for the wonderful job of publicity 
that he has done. He first came to Mary- 
land at the request of President Byrd, who 
was coaching football then. The special 
event was 'Farmers Day' and publicity 
was in order. Bill did such a good job 
that he was retained on a full-time basis. 

"Since that time his influence on pub- 
lications and publicity has been inestim- 
able. Many famous Terrapin teams re- 
ceived their notices from the publicity that 
he gave. Many famous Maryland athletes

Fuller, '96, and Mont, '44, Meet on 
Homecoming Day. Both were quarter- 
backs of Maryland teams and both grad- 
uated from Allegany High School, Cum- 
berland. 50 years apart. 

Mont's Great Record 
Receives High Praise 

Tommy Mont, mainspring in Clark 
Shaughnessy's "T" formation, was chosen 
by the Diamondback, Maryland student 
newspaper, as the outstanding athlete of 
the year to coincide with the selection of 
the Touchdown Club of Washington in 
awarding him the Arch McDonald trophy 
as the outstanding college player in the 
Metropolitan Washington area. In the 
voting at the University he was trailed by 
John Gilmore, the only four-letter athlete 
in school. 

Will Place High 

Although no all-star teams have as yet 
been announced for the District, Tommy 
is virtually a certainty to occupy the quar- 
terback position. The high rating that his 
passing and kicking, as well as his general- 
ship, brought him guarantees this selec- 

A versatile athlete, Mont is outstanding 
at basketball. On a squad that was over- 
shadowed by the high scoring of Ernie 
Travis, Tom came up with better than 170 
points for the season, an excellent aver- 
age. An aggressive floorman, Mont never 
lets up, and is always hawking the ball. 

From Cumberland 

Tommy began his career in Cumberland, 
Maryland, where he went to Allegany High 
to earn seven letters. He starred in foot- 
ball, basketball and baseball. He was good 
enough in the first two to win berths on 
several all-star teams. 

The freshman grid squad that Mont 
quarterbacked failed to live up to early sea- 
son prospects, but Tommy established him- 
self as a coming star with his good work. 
The basketball squad was one of the best 
frosh teams Maryland ever had. Mont was 
considered one of the best of a sterling 
group of prospects. 

Named All-State 

Although he was kept out of three 
games by injuries, Mont lived up to his 
advance notices in sharing the quarter- 
backing duties with Senior Merle DuVall. 
He was named to the All-State All-Soph- 
omore team. In this year he continued to 
shine with the basketball squad. In the 
Spring, Mont started out playing lacrosse, 
and was heading for a fine season when 
Clark Shaughnessy arrived at Maryland. 

It was on the gridiron that Tommy 
really shone. His passing was the highlight

Fuller, '96, Recalls First 
Football Team At Maryland 

One of the first and most enthusiastic ol 
the old grads to be seen on the campus on 
Homecoming Day was Clifton E. Fuller, 
,( )(>. who came all the way from Cumber 
land to help celebrate the culmination of 
fifty years of football at Maryland. 

Mr. Fuller was a member of the first 
football team which was organized in 1892 
at the old Maryland Agricultural College, 
now the College Park branch of the Uni 
versify of Maryland. In addition to Mr. 
I Fuller, four other members of this team 
are still living. They are Dr. W. W. Skin 
ner. '96, of the U. S. Department of 
1 Agriculture, who was a member for many 
! years of the board of regents of the Uni- 
versity; W. T. S'. Rollins, '96. an official 
of the Post Office Department with offices 
in Washington, D. C; Parker Mitchell, 
! '94, who is running a packing business in 
! Perryman, Md., and Sothoron Key, '94, a 
practicing physician in the District of Co 

Mr. Fuller thoroughly enjoyed renewing 
many old friendships and proudly dis- 
played the colors of the first football team. 
maroon and pearl. In this connection he 
laughingly pointed out to Coach Shaugh- 
nessy that the new Maryland colors of red 
and white are not so new after all. Mr. 
Fuller was President Byrd's guest of honor 
during the football game and later was 
photographed with Tommy Mont, of 
Cumberland, this year's dynamic quarter- 
back at the University who, by an odd 
coincidence, was graduated from the same 
high school in Cumberland that Mr. 
Fuller had attended fifty years earlier. 

University Has Biggest 
Percentage In R.O.T.C. 

Out of the nineteen colleges in its serv- 
ice area, Maryland has the greatest per- 
centage of male students enrolled in the 
ROTC, according to figures just received 
from headquarters of the Third Service 

Of its present enrollment of 2,000 men, 
1,639 are engaged in military training. 
Ranging only fifth highest in total mini 
ber of men, the University is second only 
to Penn State in the number enlisted in 

According to these figures, there arc 
1,355 enrolled in the local infantry unit, 
of which 328 are in the Advanced Course. 
2 54 are signed up in the Signal Corps, in- 
cluding 59 Advanced students.

"Our do's hang on welcmn hinges," 
Uncle Woodson always said to visitors as 
he received them at the door, or bade them 
farewell, lie was the embodiment of his 
white folks' hospitality, the very spirit of 
the Old South. And this hook is a baiu- 
tif nl tribute to him — the old man who 
"on de edge of dark," used to talk to his 
white children about so many old, far- 
off things. . . . 

"Since childhood," says the author, "I 
have been intensely interested in the col- 
ored race — in their life and their philos- 
ophy. There was something instilled into 
my being by those early experiences which 
has impelled me to set down the sayings 
and philosophy of Uncle Woodson and 
the other Gay Mont negroes." 

Mr. Robb is at the present time living 
in Richmond, Va., and his home address 
is 13 River Road.

Yes, it's Jack's first — a boy. And after Jack had got 
over the shock of being a father, he began to plan, 
as all of them do. 

"What d'you think, Doc," he said, "suppose he'll 
make a doctor?" 

"Could be," I said. "Though I'd wait till he got some 
hair and teeth before I decided for sure." 

But shucks! Jack wasn't listening. By the time I left 
he'd had the kid governor — he's probably president 
by now ! 

President? Maybe. No telling what little Johnnie' 11 be 
when he grows up. But whatever it is, we're sure going 
to be needing men like him! There'll be jobs to do, design- 
ing and building things for the future. Things like tele- 
vision, and air conditioning, and plastics, and what'll 
come after them. 

This war is changing lots of things. We're just begin- 
ning to realize how big a job we've got ahead. But if the 
war's already showed us anything, it's that we couldn't 
begin to win if there hadn't been men with courage and 

vision to build factories and organizations big enough to 
make the weapons and equipment our boys in the Army 
and Navy need. 

And it's showed us that if the factories can pour out 
war stuff the way they're doing today, afterwards they 
can turn out just as much to make peacetime living better. 

So it's up to us to see that Johnnie has his chance, too. 
The chance to use all his initiative and gumption to pro- 
duce something worth while. To give to the world as 
much as he gets. There's some satisfaction in a job like 
that! And that's the kind of a future I wish for little 
Johnnie Higgins! General Electric Co., Schenectady, N. Y. 

The volume of General Electric war production is so high and 
the degree of secrecy required is so great that we can tell you 
little about it now. When it can be told completely, we believe 
that the story of industry's developments during the war years 
will make one of the most fascinating chapters in the history 
of industrial progress.

The article states; "During the battle

"Serving under Major William I. Gal

Weller said: 'these medical aide men were

"The hospital in which they served was 
shelled and bombed by the Japs but the 
wounded were cared for quickly. Several 
Japs received treatment at one of the 
American hospitals. 

"Lieutenant Karns, who was horn in 
Cumberland, was the gold-medal man

In spite of the difficulties of travel and 
an extremely threatening sky more than 
5,000 students, friends and parents saw 
309 graduates receive their diplomas at the 
first mid-winter graduation ever held by 
the University of Maryland. 

Held In Coliseum 

The exercises were held in Ritchie 
Coliseum and the main address was de- 
livered by the distinguished Under-Secre- 
tary of State Sumner Welles, who was later 
presented for the honorary degree of doctor 
of laws by Henry Uolzapfel, Jr., chairman 
of the board of regents of the University. 
In presenting the Under-Secretary, Mr. 
Holzapfel pointed out that "more than 
any other man Mr. Welles had contributed 
to the solidarity of the South American 

Commencement week for the graduat- 
ing class began the preceding Sunday 
when the baccalaureate sermon was de- 
livered by the Reverend Nathaniel Acton, 
rector of the St. Andrews Episcopal 
Church of College Park, who told the class 
members "not to fear the future but to 
have faith in our national character which 
can make you better men and women." 

Special Awards Assembly 

In addition to Mr. Welles, others who 
spoke at the commencement exercises in- 
cluded President H. C. Byrd, who also 
presented the diplomas; Mr. Holzapfel: 
Brigadier General Edward W. Smith, Jr., 
Executive for Reserves and R.O.T.C. 
affairs; Brigadier General John T. Lewis, 
Commanding General of the Washington 
Military District; and Colonel C. E. Mc- 
Carthy, Chief of the Reserve Branch of 
the Washington Military District. 

General Smith presented certificates and 
diplomas to 84 members of the graduating 
class who were about to enter the United 
States army as second lieutenants. In 
addition, Mrs. John L. YVhitehurst, only 
woman member of the board of regents, 
presented the diplomas to the graduates 
of the College of Home Economics. 

Other Features 

Other features of the program included 
presentation of honorary certificates in 
Agriculture to R. W. Shermantine, of the 
Maryland Milk Producer Cooperative, 
and D. B. McDowell, outstanding Cecil 
County dairyman; the singing of the Star 
Spangled Banner by Harlan Randall, head 
of the University's Music Department; 
and the Lord's Prayer by Justine Lawrie, 
of the Foundry Methodist Church, of 
Washington, D. C. 

In his address to the graduates Mr. 
Welles stated: "We sometimes hear it 
said, all too frequently I think, that the 
cause for which we are fighting has not 
been made sufficiently plain. I feel you 
will agree with me that the issues of this 
conflict in which our people have been 
forced to engage are everlastingly clear. 
We, the people of the United States, are 
fighting to preserve our own liberties and 
our own independence. We are fighting in 
order to defeat a group of tyrannies, per- 
sonifying all that which is most brutish and 
most evil in mankind, who have thought 
that they could dominate by force and 
treachery the whole world. And we are 
fighting, I hope and believe, in order to 
create a world of the future in which the 
smallest nation, as well as the largest 
nation, may find itself safe, and in which 
men and women can live out their lives in 

peace, in individual liberty, and in security 
"I wonder if you realize what the United 
States means to the rest of the world, 
particularly to the peoples who today are 
living in the slavery imposed by Hitler. 
I wonder if you appreciate fully what the 
prestige of this country of yours actually 
is, and how great is the hope which has 
been kindled in the hearts and minds of 
men and women throughout the world be- 
cause of the fact that your country is 
joined to the other members of the United 
Nations in this battle for freedom. 

Covet No Property 

"That hope rests, of course, in part upon 
the knowledge that the power of this na- 
tion is so great, now that the miracle of 
our initial war effort has been accom- 
plished, as to make it clear beyond the 
shadow of any doubt that we shall achieve 
the victory which is our objective. But 
that hope rests also upon something else. 
It rests upon the moral character of the 
United States. The peoples of the earth 
know that the United States had no sel- 
fish ends in view when it engaged in this 
battle. They know that we desire no inch 
of territory outside of our own possessions. 
They know that we covet the property of 
no other people and that we have no de- 
sire to dominate any other race. They 
know that we have already granted free- 
dom to the people for whom for a time we 
we served as trustees. They know and 
they hope that if this country is willing to 
exercise its moral strength to the same ex- 
tent as it is now prepared to make felt 
its physical strength, the ideals for which 
the American people stand and in which 
they believe can be realized.

Dunnington, '14 Sends In 
Interesting Alumni Items 

The following letter by an old grad, now- 
stationed in South Dakota contained so 
much of interest about various alumni 
that we thought we would print it in full. 
The letter was sent by Frank "Dunny" 
Dunnington, who is a Major in the Army 
Air Corps and Commander of the 99th 
Bomb Group, W'atertown, South Dakota. 
The letter reads as follows: 

"As news of the whereabouts of alumni 
of the University of Maryland seems to be 
of interest in your columns, I thought a 
Father and Son act might not be out of

Dr. Bernard J. Holm, assistant pro- 
fessor in the history department of the 
University, is the co-author of a new con- 
tribution to the field of historical writing 
which appeared recently under the title 
"A history of Historical Writing." Dr. 
Holm collaborated with the late Professor 
James C. W'estfall Thompson, interna- 
tionally known historian who worked for 
many years on the two volumes. 

First Book of Kind 

The book is the first in any language to 
give a general and sustained account of 
the history of historical writing from the 
earliest times to the present. The work 
fits each author into the general intel- 
lectual background of his age and assigns 
to him his place in the development of 
modern historigraphy. A recent review in 

the Baltimore Evening Sun called the work 
a "grand scale synthesis, filling a place 
which at the present time no other single 
work of historical scholarship can even 
pretend to occupy." 

While Dr. Holm was Professor Thomp- 
son's research assistant at the University 
of California from 1936 to 1941, the two 
historians collaborated on the book, which 
was completed after six years of labor. 

Phi Beta Kappa 

Dr. Holm came to the University of 
Maryland after being trained in both 
history and theology at Capitol Seminary, 
Columbus, Ohio. He is a member of Phi 
Beta Kappa and an associate editor of 
"The Historian," journal of the national 
fraternity, Phi Alpha Theta.

Old Line Athletic Contributions

Basketball Team Suffers 
From Some Bad Breaks 

Coach Burton Shipley was all set to see 
Maryland a sure shot for the Southern 
Conference finals when he struck a line 
of bad breaks. At present writing Mary- 
land has about an even chance to see its 
team in the finals for the Southern Con- 
ference title. 

Outstanding on the team thus far have 
been tall Ernie Travis and converted foot- 
baller, Tommy Mont. These boys, both of 
whom are fast and smart, have proven to 
be a two-pronged offense upon which the 
Old Liners could always depend. Travis 
has an average of 16 points per game 
while Tommy is not far behind. In addi- 
tion to these outstanding point getters, 
Don Schuerholz, Eddie Baitz, and Bob 
James, have also shown up to advantage. 

Start Is Good 

Starting with a rush Maryland defeated 
Richmond University, 32-28. Don Schuer- 
holz was the man of the evening in a game 
which showed that the team needed to 
improve its passing attack. This had defi- 
nitely improved by the time North Caro- 
lina came up and the team disposed of the 
Tarheels handily. 

Defeating the University of Virginia by 
the score of 53-45, in a thrilling game that 
required an overtime period, the team 
demonstrated that it was developing into 
a smooth, deadly court machin". Mont 
and Travis led the way in this one and the 
rest of the players easily found the basket. 
It was at this time that Maryland took to 
the road and Dame Fortune started to 
frown. In a closely disputed game Penn- 
sylvania defeated the Old Liners and in 
quick succession they also lost to Wash- 
ington and Lee and Virginia Military 

Future Seems Hopeful 

Coming back to school the team met its 
traditionally tough rival, (ieorge Wash- 
ington, and in a close game, lost 48-43. 
Setting down to a session of hard, tough 
practice the team went on to defeat Navy 
in a thrilling game. From this showing the 
quint seemed to prove that it had gotten 
out of its losing rut and was once more on 
the winning road. In the coming weeks

At fytUu&uiLf, 

Clark Shaughnessy, head coach of foot- 
ball, director of athletics and professor of 
physical education at the University of 
Maryland, handed in his resignation to 
President Byrd on January 25. Five days 
later he left College Park to become head 
football coach and a member of the faculty 
at the University of Pittsburgh. 

Mr. Shaughnessy 's letter of resignation 
to President Byrd reads as follows: 

Dear Dr. Byrd: 

It is with sincere regret that I 
tender herewith my resignation as 
Director of Athletics and Professor of 
Physical Education at the University 
of Maryland, to take effect on January 
31, 1943. 

I have deeply appreciated the fine 
cooperation and friendly relations of 
everybody here at the University, and 
I am exceedingly sorry that circum- 
stances have arisen that make it 
necessary for me to leave the Uni- 

I most heartily wish you personally, 
the University of Maryland, and all of 
the members of the University of 
Maryland family, students, faculty 
and alumni, the greatest of success. 


Clark D. Shaughnessy, 
Director of Athlet'cs. 

As Mr. Shaughnessy 's sudden leave- 
taking has already received considerable 
publicity by the press in general and as no 
plans have been made for his replacement 
at this writing the Alumni News feels 
that nothing further need be said at this 

lina, and Williams and Mary should pro- 
vide good tests. On the basis of its last 
game Maryland stands a good chance of 
coming out ahead in most of these and 
securing a berth in the Southern Con- 
ference play-offs. 

Campagna Brings Boxers 
Along In Great Style 

Maryland's boxing team, approaching 
the end of its first season under Tom 
Campagna, has responded in great style 
to win four bouts while losing only one, 
that one a tough loss to the University of 
Virginia. Considering the fact that Cam- 
pagna came to Maryland with just a few 
days to get the team in shape, brings home 
the fact that this team is well qualified to 
rank as one of Maryland's best. 
Freshman Are Used 
Using freshman for the first time the \ 
boxing team made good use of Morris 
Guerrant and Ed Reider. Guerrant en- 
enjoyed a prep school reputation that 
quickly brought him to the attention of 
the new coach. Ed Reider, the other fresh- 
man, had not fought before this year and 
went out for the team only after he had 
won the 135 weight class in a boxing 
tournament sponsored by the ROTC. 

Len Rodman, heavyweight has proven 
a real addition to the team, with a power- 
fully developed right that has put the 
majority of his opponents away for the 
count. Jack Gilmore, at 165, and Herb 
Gunther, at 175, have provided a one-two 
punch that did much to insure Maryland's 
boxing season. 

At this writing Maryland has defeated 
the Coast Guard Academy, Western Mary- 
land, VPI, and Army and were looking 
tow-ard to their traditional rival, Catholic 
University. The boxers face the Cardinals 
with the last appearance of three of their 
most valuable players. Gilmore, Gunther 
and Guerrant. Gilmore and Gunther leave 
school via the graduation route while 
Morris Guerrant goes to do some fighting 
for his Uncle Sam. 

Campagna has expressed satisfaction 
with the team and the spirit of the stu- 
dents. He says that after the completion 
of this season he will stay on as boxing 
coach under the military-physical educa- 
tion program. This should insure pros- 
pects for a good team next year. 

WILLIAMS— Captain Donald H. Wil- 
liams, '38, of the United States Marine 
Corps, is on active duty "somewhere on 
the Pacific." He says, "the Alumni News 
is forwarded to me out here much to my 
enjoyment. Many an Old Liner seems to 
be doing all right for himself out here in 
the leatherneck Corps." 




{Continued from page 4) 

"It can never In' made too clear, nor 
reiterated too oil en, thai the foreign 

policy of the people of the United States, 
exactl>' like t heir domestic policies, should 
only he determined from the standpoint 
of what the American people believe is 
their real, their practical, self-interest. Our 
foreign policy must not be — and in the 
long run never will be — based upon emo- 
tional altruism nor sentimental aspiration. 

[ What we should all of us be asking our- 
selves day in and day out is, not only 
what policies this country should adopt 
after the war in order to make sure that 
our security and out best interests are 

'safeguarded, but also what this country 
of ours could have done in the past in 
order to prevent, or at least to make less 
likely, the rise of the conditions which 

! have permitted the outbreak of this great 
world struggle in which we are now en- 

Foresook Responsibility 

"I doubt that many thinking men and 
women today can fail to recognize the 
fact that if the United States had been 
willing a generation ago to bear its fair 
share of the responsibility for the main- 
tenance of world order, the birth and the 
fantastic growth of those forces which 
crystalized into Hitlerism and Fascism and 
aggressive Japanese militarism would have 
been far less probable. From the stand- 
point of our selfish interest alone the cost 
to the American people of our assumption 
of such responsibilities during the twenty- 
five years that have now passed would 
have been infinitely less than the cost of 
the life and the treasure which we are now 
called upon to bear in order to achieve the 
total victory which is indispensable if our 
country and our civilization are to survive. 

"In the positive sense, the free peoples 
of the Xew World share no responsibility 
for the outbreak of this world upheaval. 
What we in the Americas have wanted was 
to live at peace and to enjoy the liberities 
which the struggles of our forefathers con- 
ferred upon us. But in the negative sense, 
far too many of us here in the United 
States at least have failed to appreciate 
the basic fact that in the world of today, 
not even a hemisphere can live in peace 
and enjoy its liberty, much less achieve 
prosperity, if the rest of the world is going 
up in flames. For that cardinal error we 
cannot disclaim our full share of responsi- 

"In order to force from the enemies of 
mankind that unconditional surrender 
which is the only basis upon which this 

war c.iii end,' we require, .nid we ,uc f< i 
tunately obtaining, the loyal and lie iiii 
wavering cooperation foi "in armies, foi 
our n.ivic-s. .mil for['our air pewer (i the 
other members "i the 1 nited Vinous 
We .ill of us recognize that this type ol 
military and n.iv al collaborat it n 
tial in order to expedite the ultimate 
victory. Is it not equally true that the 
same form ol cooperation is just as indis 
pensable in the years to come, after the 

battle is won, in older to make certain 

that peace is maintained, that interna prosperity is assured, and that the 
human rights and liberties in which we 

believe are made everlastingly secure' 

"As 1 see it, that is the greatest problem 
which lies before you as you graduate from 
this University and undertake the task of 
helping to defend your country. You who 
will be doing the lighting and the working 
which will make it possible for us to gain 
this victory must equally be called upon 
to share in the determination of the course 
which your government follows at the 
conclusion of the war. You have before 
you as signals of warning the mistakes of 
judgment and the lack of foresight of my 
generation, and of the generation which 
preceded mine. 

"The great question which lies l>efore 
all of us is the question of how our people 
can best assure the safety of our nation in 
the years to come and can best safeguard 
the individual security of each of its 

"In its solution surely the sacrifices 
which we are making today, and the still 
greater sacrifices which we will yet be 
called upon to make, will light the road 
towards the attainment of the goal for 
which we strive."

At Large 

Classmate Sees Grave 
of 'Duke" Alexander 

Mr. William II. England, of the Federal 
Trade Commission, received a letter re- 
cently from his son. Corporal William II. 
England, Jr., a former student at the Uni- 
versity, Young England, who was in Aus- 
tralia more than a year ago and since that 
time has served in New Caledonia, two 
different islands of the New Hebrides, and 
Gaudalcanal, had a strange experience 
which he described to his father. 

"The other day I had a strange coinci- 
dence while going through the graveyard 
here on the island. While passing through 
the rows, I ran across the grave of a friend 
of mine at college by the name of "Duke" 
Alexander, who was a Marine. The boy 
was one of the greatest fellows that one 
could ever meet and a great athlete, starring 
in football and track at school. His buddies 
had his name and a nice tribute inscribed 
on an A. A. shell beside his grave. One of 
the fellows from school wrote and told me 
he had been killed in action, so I thought 
I would sec if I could find his grave here 
on the island." 

Lt. Robert Howard Smith 
Reported Killed In Africa 

Lieutenant Robert Howard Smith, U. 
S. Army Air Corps, of Silver Spring, Md., 
was killed in action in Africa on February 
2. He enlisted in the Army in his junior

overseas duty on October 24, 1942, his 
24th birthday. He had beef) cited for 
knocking down a Junkers plane in a raid 
on an American airport on January 15. 

Besides his parents, he leaves two broth- 
ers, Paul Smith, who has just graduated 
from the University and who enlisted in

Dr. William Turner Wootton, who

was recently elected president of the 
Southern Medical Association at the meet

Recognized Leader 
Dr. Wootton is one of the University's 

most illustrious Alumni and for uiauv 
years has been a leader in the medical 
world, especially in the South, and is the 
author of many well known publications. 
His home is in Hot Springs, Ark. 

\ line tribute is paid Dr. Wootton in 
an editorial which appeared in the January 
issue of the Southern Medical Journal. 

"The Richmond meeting, which was 
one of the best of the Association, shone 
particularly in its selection of officers for 
the year to come. The new President -Elect 
is one of the Southern Medical's best and 
oldest friends and a man lout; popular 
with its members. An intimate of the men 
who organized the Association and an

When Was First Maryland 
Football Team - '91 or '92? 

There seems to be some question as to 
whether the University of Maryland was 
celebrating the culmination of fifty or fifty- 
one years of football at the annual Home 
coming Day last fall. 

P. C. Prough, '94, writes in to say that 
as nearly as he can remember the first 
football team at College Park was organ- 
ized in 1 891 at the old Maryland Agri 
cultural College. At least, he says, the 
Alumni News was very much wrong in 
stating that there are only four members 
of this original team still living — be- 
cause he makes the fifth living member. 
In addition to Mr. Prough. the only other 
members of the team known to be living 
are Dr. W. W. Skinner, '96; W. T. S. 
Rollins, '96; Parker Mitchell. '94, and 
Sothoron Key, '94. 

The News regrets the error in omitting 
Mr. Plough's name, and if there are an\ 
other members of the team we shall be 
glad to hear from them, especially if thc\ 
can clear up the question of whethei Marj 
land's first official football team was estab 
lished in lS'M or lv>:.

Thirty Stickmen Prep 
For First Lacrosse Game 

W ith the first game scheduled with 
Drexel Institute on Wednesday, March 
24. about thirty stickmen have been prep- 
ping for the initial match under the able 
tutelage of Al Heagy, who was recently 
named head lacrosse coach at the Uni- 

Good Season In Prospect 

Prospects for the season are excellent. 
A nucleus of eight letter men has been 
bolstered by strong reserves from last year's 
squad and members of the freshman team 
who have had varsity experience during the 
summer schedule. At this writing the 
schedule had not been entirely completed 
but enough games had been listed to give 
promise of an interesting season. 

Uthough two star attack men. Milt Van- 
denBerg and Ray Greleki, have graduated, 
Coach Heagy is not earning a crying tow el 
for prospects for the midfield are better 
than in several seasons. Also the attack has 
a number of experienced players to build 
around and Captain Jack Faber, who 
coached many a Maryland lacrosse team to 
greatness, hopes to be able to find an 
occasional free afternoon from his duties 
at Walter Reed Hospital to help in this 

Defense Is Green 

The defense is one of the green spots 
of the team. There are only two lettermen 
out. Jack Dittmar and Bud Keller. The 
third spot is open, and the goal will prob- 
ably be defended by Mel Udelowitz, a 
junior without varsity experience. 

Bad weather had been hampering work- 
outs as the lacrossemen prepared for the 
first match which came after only three 
weeks' preparation, an unusually short time 
to prepare for a sport. 

Probable schedule of games will be: 

March 24 Drexel College Park 

April 10 Rutgers (tent.) College Park 

April 17 Duke (tent.) College Park 

April 24 Princeton (tent.) Princeton 

April 28 Loyola College Park 

May 1 Penn State College Park

Washington Senators 
Train At College Park 

Denied the privilege of training in 
Florida's sunny clime by Judge Landis and 
the Office of Defense Transportation the 
Washington American League Senators will 
use the University of Maryland for a training 
site this spring. 

At this writing the first contingent, con- 
sisting of pitchers, catchers, coaches and 
Manager Ossie Bluge, was due to arrive at 
College Park on March 14. The second 
group of players was to arrive on March 24. 

The ball players will be quartered in the 
new Men's Dormitories and will eat their 
meals in the dining hall. The baseball field 
has been turned over to them, and their own 
ground's keepers will take care of the field. 
The diamond was originally laid out by the 
head ground keepers of the Senators and is 
one of the best available. 

The Senators will play nearby service 
teams at Norfolk, where there is much base- 
ball talent, as well as take trips for exhibition 
games with the Giants in New York. No 
exhibitions are slated for the local diamond, 
although there is one on tap with the Balti- 
more Orioles for Griffith Stadium on the 
10th of April. 


Boxing Team Completes 
Satisfactory Year 

Hit more heavily by graduation and the 
call for reserves, the Maryland boxing team 
finished the season with a win despite the 
loss of two star heavyweights, John Gil- 
more and Herb Gunther. Over the seven- 
match campaign the line-up of heavy- 
weights made an outstanding record as 
four boxers, Ed Reider, Johnny Gilmore, 
Herb Gunther and Len Rodman went 
through three matches before one of them 
met defeat. Gunther, Southern Conference 
175-pound class champion, remained un- 
defeated throughout the season which was 
his best in three years of fighting. 

Only One Defeat 

After the single defeat at the hands of 
the University of Virginia, which featured 
some exceedingly close decisions, the box- 
ers finished their remaining three matches 
by overwhelming scores. First opponent to 
fall was Lock Haven Teachers. Fought in 
the lull between semesters, the Pennsylvan- 
ians went down to a 6V2-H/2 count. John 
Gilmore, although he scored a knockdown 
in the second round, could do no better 
than a draw in the 165-pound bout. 

Catholic University provided the back- 
ground for Herb Gunther's last appcar- 
( Continued on page 7) 

Basketball Team Hit 

By War And Graduation 

Graduation and Uncle Sam hit the Old 
Line cage team hard and only three first- 
stringers were left at the end of the sea- 
son. First to go was Don Schuerholz, who 
left for the Air Corps after the .George- 
town game. He was fifth in team scoring, 
but his scrappy ball-hawking pulled Man- 
land out of many holes during the season. 
Next to go was Ed Baitz, regular forward, 
who contributed 94 points to the total 
scoring. Ernie Travis, leading scorer in the 
State, was on deck for the last contest with 
V. M. I. but left for Camp Lee soon after. 

Demonstrated Power 

The cagers finished the season with 
seven wins and eight losses and in the 
Southern Conference the record was five 
and five. Although the losses outweighed 
the wins, the courtmen demonstrated 
power all through the campaign. Even 
highly rated rivals, such as Duke, George- 
town, and George Washington, current 
Southern Conference champs, failed to roll 
up large scores as had been predicted. One 
of the best games of the season was played 
against the Naval Academy when Ernie 
Travis and Tom Mont went wild to score 
thirty and twenty-three counters, respect 
ivelv . It was the highst scoring game of 
th season and Maryland won, 63-54. 

Duke proved to be somewhat of a dis- 
appointment. The Devils arrived in College 
Park with considerable advance publicity 
but despite a busy evening the Old Liners 
suffered only a 46-43 defeat. A two-day 
road trip to the South turned in wins 
against Virginia and North Carolina. 

Georgetown Game Thrills 

The most thrilling contest of the year 
was played against Georgetown. Playing 
their last game as a unit, the five original 
Old Liners took to the court and plaved 
an amazing game, moving into a first half 
lead that dwindled to a tie at mid-game. 
The Marylanders were superb defensively 
as they held the Hoyas to 1 5 points in 
the first half. Bob James rocked the visitors 
with long set shots from midcourt while 
Don Schuerholz upset them more than 
once with his scurrying brand of ball- 
hawking. Although the Hoyas pulled away 
in the second period, it was one of the 
best showings that Man land put on all 

\ weakened William and Mary team did 
(Continued on page 

Basketball Team Hit 

(Continued from page 6) 

not offer much opposition as Maryland took 
over after a slow start to run up a 51-35 
score. The final game was the deciding 

factor as to whether the OKI Liners would 
go to the Southern Conference but the 
loss ol two regulars and a strong V. M. 1. 
team was sufficient to decide that. After 
a sec saw final stanza in which the lead 
changed hands five times. Maryland had 
possession of the ball, a one point lead 
and a minute and a half to go. Sticking 
closer than a panhandle: after a dime, 
the Keydets' Emil Sotnyk grabbed the 
ball from a scramble, dribbled the length 
of the floor and sank a snowbird to put 
the Virginians out in front by a single 
counter. As Mankind tried to put in the 
winning basket, a Liner was fouled and 
awarded two free throws, but both rolled 
off the hoop and so the game ended. 
State High Scorers 
In Ernie Travis and Tommy Mont, 
Mankind had the two highest scorers in 
the State. Travis collected 14 markers to 
put him in front of the scoring for the 
second consecutive year. lie hooped 216 
points while Mont made an even 200. 
Mont put in 58 baskets from the floor to 
lead that department while Travis made 
good 47 free throws. 

Satisfactory Ring Year 

(Continued from page 6) 

ance. Gilmore was also scheduled to make 
his last showing at this time before re- 
porting to Fort Benning with Gunthcr, 
but he was counted out by a combination 
of grippe and pneumonia. 

Gunther's Record Great 

The thrill of the evening was provided 
by Bill Kambouris' thirty second knock- 
out in the 127-pound bout. Tom Jones, re- 
appearing after being held out by a jaw 
operation, returned to gain a victory. Ed 
Reider added to the knockout list as he 
finished his opponent at the close of the 
second round. Gunther came through to 
take his bout and finish one of the greatest 
boxing careers in Maryland history. 

By juggling the weight classes and in- 
troducing a newcomer, Benson Schwartz, 
a still formidable Liner squad outclassed 
a well-rated Tar Heel team. One of the 
most surprising bouts of the evening was 
Schwartz*s performance in the 155-pound 
scrap. Against a wildly rushing opponent, 
Schwartz boxed cannily, employing only a 
strong left jab to win the nod. Another

thirtj three seconds of the initial stanza,

then lines foi the last lime as Ed Rculci 
and Kay Cicionc won their last bouts. 

Botli were freshmen and had promised 
much ill the ring and on the gridiron. 
Ciccone was a star halfback while Reidei 
shone in the line of one of Maryland's 
strongest freshman football teams in years. 
Ciccone went with the Enlisted Reserve 
Corps while Reider was called by the draft. 

Lose At Syracuse 
Maryland answered the imitation to the 
Eastern Intercollegiate Boxing Tournament 
at Syracuse with only five men: Bill Kam 
bouris. Tom Jones, Alex Bobcnko. Benson 
Schwartz and Ecu Rodman. Although the 
Liners were conceded only an outside 
chance to retain the crown they won last 
year, two men placed in the finals. Tom 
Jones dropped a close one in one of the 
most thrilling battles in the tournament. 
I Ie floored his opponent in the second 
round but succumbed to a late flurry to 
lose the nod. Ecu Rodman, heavyweight, 
also made the finals to lose a close deci 
sion to Salvatore Marabito, three time 
champion. Although Rodman had the Syra- 
cuse boy backing up and shaking his head, 
he received more leather than he could land 
and lost the title. 

The excellent showing made by the 
squad this yeir is a direct tribute to the 
skill of Coach Tom Campagna. Despite 
a late start and crippling losses, Campagna 
turned out a team that rates with the best 
in Maryland's history.

Former Maryland Students 
Meet Again In England 

Two former University of Maryland stu- 
dents recently renewed acquaintance in 
England. These students were Bay Lussicr, 
of Rock Hall, the first Maryland girl to 
win her wings in England as a ferry pilot 
for the British Air Transport Auxiliary, 
and Lieutenant Kenneth Reechcr, of Ha- 

Bay's arrival in London on three days' 
leave to keep a date with Kenny, who re- 
ceived a forty-eight hour pass after re- 
turning from a bombing mission, solved 
the problem of finding a name for the 
fourth engine of a new Flying Fortress 
which he expects to pilot and call "Mary- 
land My Maryland." 

Having named the other three engines 
of the fortress "Lord Baltimore." "Lord 
Calvert," and "Johnny Hager," Kenny de- 
cided to name the fourth engine "Bay" 
after his Maryland classmate. 

At the University of Maryland both Bav 
and Kenny were enrolled in a Civilian 
Pilot Training Course. 

Lieutenant Reecher entered the College 
of Commerce at the University in 1940. 
I Ic was chairman of the freshman class and 
played lacrosse, but his real interest was 
a two-year course preparatory to entering 
the Army Air Forces.

One of the University of Maryland's 
oldest and most illustrious alumni is Cator 
Woolford, '89, who is the founder of the 
Retail Credit Company which has its 
home office in Atlanta. In the April issue of 
the Inspection News, official publication 
of the Company, a very fine article ap- 
peared on the life history of Mr. Woolford. 
The article provided such interesting read- 
ing about a man who has brought great 
honor to himself and to his Alma Mater 
we are reprinting part of it for our readers. 
Established Company 

"Inasmuch as March is known in the 
Retail Credit Company as 'Founder's 
Month', this would seem to be an ap- 
propriate time to present a current re- 
port on the founder himself. Although 
retired, Mr. Cator Woolford might easily 
be referred to as 'Exhibit A' of his fre- 
quent advice, 'Keep going, keep going.' 

"The first seventeen years of his life 
were spent on a farm in Maryland and in 
returning to 'farm life' at Altama, his home 

in the Georgia coastal section, 'Mr. Cator' 
has become active in numerous activities. 
He is privately engaged in timber opera- 
tions with Lighter Wood as a sideline (the 
latter being the seasoned hearts of pine 
trees cut in uniform size splinters for 
kindling fires). In this clay of rationing 
and food shortages, 'Mr. Cator' is doing his 
part in the general war program at home 
by having vegetable gardens, rice fields, 
poultry brooders, Jersey cows and beef

"While concentrating on more practical 
aspects, the aesthetic development of Al- 
tama has by no means been neglected, as

time to plant a number of the flowering 
trees, among them 'Gordonia Altamaha,' 
known in horticultural circles as the 'Lost

Kncou rages Responsibility 

"Business assoei.ites of Ah. Catoi' who 

know how much importance he attaches to 
well-organized procedure need not be told 
that \ltam.i is conducted on a methodical 

basis. \s a mattei ol tut. the 'Put up S\ s 
tern' and the 'Suggestion S\stem' which 
he originated and put into effect in the 
Retail Credit Company many years ago 
are very much m evidence at Utama. 

"The expression, 'put-up,' far from re 
ferriim to a put-up job or the proverbial 
'buck-passing,' is a term applied to a s\ s 
tern which was a result of Air. Cator's' 
plan for placing upon Retail Credit Com 
pany employees a full measure of respon- 
sibility, giving each individual the oppor- 
tunity to be a thinking, responsible ad- 
ministrator of the business. This system 
provides for a complete analysis of a propo- 
sition and a recommendation of the action 
to be taken, supported by sound reasons 
for the suggested action. 

At Work Early 

"A unique phase of the system is that 
a specified period is set aside each day 
for 'put-ups.' At Altama this specified pe- 
riod is early in the morning. Air. Cator' 
arrives at his desk before seven each morn- 
ing and maps his schedule for the day. 
Shortly after breakfast the manager of 
the timber operations and the foreman of 
Altama come in to go over the day's 'line- 
up' and to present their 'put-ups.' Inline 
diately afterwards, 'Mr. Cator' makes the 
rounds of the various scenes of activity, 
often stopping to lend a hand or stage a 
demonstration. His personal activity is not 
limited to merely inspection and super- 
vision of the various projects under way, 
but includes actual work as he spends at 
least two or three hours each morning and 
usually one or two hours in the late aftei 
noon working in the woods — burning 
undergrowth, etc."

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Stickmen Seem Headed 
For Successful Season 

With the Drexcl and Rutgers games 
tucked safely under their belts, Maryland's 
strong lacrosse team was all set for the 
Princeton tigers as this issue of the Alumni 
News went to press. While Princeton 
promised to be the toughest opponent 
played thus far, there was every indication 
that Maryland was on its way to one of 
the best lacrosse seasons in its history. 
Seven Lettermen 

Seven lettermen are represented on the 
team this spring and there are also a large 
number of others who gained valuable ex- 
perience on the outstanding team that 
played at College Park last summer. Among 
the lettermen who are back this spring are 
Bud Keller, Jack Dittmar, John Rabai and 
Warren Eierman. These men form the 
bulwark of a clever defense which has 
helped the Old Liners tremendously thus 

The goalie position was quite a problem 
at first but was finally solved by Coach 
Heagy by moving Bill Taylor from midfield 
to that position. Taylor played the goalie 
position in high school and has apparently 
clinched that position now at Maryland. 
Midfield Safe 

The midfield positions are well taken 
care of by such good players as Otts Lund- 
vall, Bill Tarbert, Lloyd Mallonee and a 
number of capable reserves. Jack Hoyert 
started the season in the midfield but was 
shifted to close attack after the Drexel 
game showed him to be a good dodger on 
the attack. Hoyert has already been tag- 
ged by some sports writers as possible All- 
American material. 

Bob Stockbridge, Carroll Rowny and 
Doc Looper are showing up well in the 
attack positions and a real rivalry has de- 
veloped between Rowny and Looper for 
the starting berth that was left vacant by 

Drexel Is Tough 

The score of the Drexel game was no 
indication of how hard fought it actually 
was. Drexel threatened all the. way and it 
was largely because of the sterling play 
of the Maryland defense that the Philadel- 
phia team was held from scoring. In ad- 
dition, the loss of Marshall Austin, Drexel's 
star midfielder, hampered the visitors con- 

After a two-week layoff the Old Liners 
showed definite improvement in the Rut-

tf-oothaU Gaack At Matyla+id 

Of wide interest to Maryland alumni, 
was the recent appointment of Dr. Clar- 
ence W. Spears as head football coach and 
director of the Student Health Program at 
the University of Maryland. The new 
coach comes from the University of To- 
ledo where he served for seven years as 
director of athletics and head football 
coach. His appointment at Maryland be- 
came effective on April 1. 

Dartmouth Graduate 

The Maryland coaching job is the sev- 
enth held by Dr. Spears since he began 
his career in 1917. He was graduated from 
Dartmouth College where he was one of 
the outstanding linesmen of that institu- 
tion. He later studied medicine at the Rush 
Medical School and served with the Army 
Medical Corps in the last war. 

After the war "Doc" Spears abandoned 
the medical profession as a career and went 
back to Dartmouth to coach football. In 
his first season as coach of the Indians 
his team earned five wins against three 

At West Virginia 

In 1921 he moved to the University of 
West Virginia where he compiled an en- 
viable record of 29 wins against 6 losses 

during his four years' stay. Some of the 
greatest teams in the history of the school 
were turned out during "Doc" Spears' stay 
at West Virginia. From 1925 to 1929 
Spears continued his excellent record at 
the University of Minnesota, winning 29 
games and losing only 9. At Minnesota he 
produced such outstanding football players 
as Bronko Nagurski and Clarence Munn. 

After Minnesota the new Maryland 
coach moved to the University of Oregon, 
then to the University of Wisconsin, and 
finally to the University of Toledo. 

Dr. Spears spent a week at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland during the early part of 
April during which time he made a thor- 
ough inspection of athletic facilities and 
equipment at College Park. At the present 
time he is in the Middle West where he 
will pursue courses in preventive medicine 
at the University of Minnesota, the Rush 
Medical College Hospital in Chicago, and 
the Mayo Clinic at Rochester. He will 
return to the University of Man-land in 
the summer to lay plans for fall football 
practice and for carrying on the physical 
education program at College Park. There 
will be no spring football practice at the 
University this vear. 

Maryland Baseball Team 
Gets Off To Late Start 

Although starting late, the University is

"Professor Eichlin received his bache- 
lor's and master's degrees in from 
Lafayette and fust came to Washington to 
work in the United States Bureau of Si md 
ards. Dining the fust world war he worked 
foi the National Electric Supply Com- 
pany, which was then building radio equip- 
ment for the Navy. In Hie fall of 1920 he 
came to the College Park campus and 
began his teaching career here as a sistant 
professor of physics and electrical engi 
neering in the College of Engineering. 
Two years later he was appointed assoi iatc 
professor of physics in the College of Arts 
and Sciences, and in 192S he became pro 
fessor and Head of the Physics Depart- 
ment, which position he held until his un- 
timely death last July at the age of 49, thus 
completing 22 years of service o.i tins 

"Besides being a born teacher, Professor 
Eichlin was a friend and counselor of stu

of his innate common sense and his sound 
advice. For several years he received the 
Terrapin Award as the most popular teach

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Baseball Team Seems 
Potentially Strong 

Maryland's baseball team, which got 
away to a late shirt, had two wins and two 
losses to its credit .is this issue of the 
Alumni News went to press. After losing 
8 12 to a strong Fort Myer team and 2-7 
to Camp Holabird, the Old Liners came 
back with wins against Fort Belvoir and 
the U. S. Naval Academy Jayvee team. 
Jayvees Swamped 

The Navy Jayvees were swamped by the 
M. inlanders by the score of 13 4 and tlicv- 
made such an impression at Annapolis that 
the Navy varsity is trying to get a game 
with the Old Liners. Hard hitting by Mary- 
land was the main reason for the score 
against the Midshipmen hut the Middies 
also helped the Old Liners greatly by weak 
fielding. Lefty Crist did some stellar pitch- 
ing for Maryland and Lie!) McDonald was 
able to corner a home run. 

Potentially Strong 

The Maryland team is potentially one of 
the strongest to represent the institution 
in years but heavy inroads have been made 
into practice seasons because of the amount 
of time that must he spent on the physical 
education program of the R. O. T. C. 
Only about two days a week are left for 
baseball practice and this time is utilized 
by playing intcrsquad games. About thirty 
men are out for baseball at the present 

Pitching is the one weak spot on the 
team as most of the veterans from the 
teams of last spring and summer are being 
used in the infield and outfield this year. 

Thirty-Five Men Report 
For Track Practice 

Although no meets have been scheduled 
as yet, about thirty-five men are toiling 
away on a somewhat modified track team 
which got under way late in April. Al- 
though considerable difficulty was encoun- 
tered at first in locating a coach, this prob- 
lem was finally overcome when Dr. Wil- 
liam II. Peden, Assistant Professor of Eng- 
lish at the University, consented to serve. 
Dr. Peden enjoys a national reputation as 
a middle distance runner. He was captain 
of the track team while a student at the 
University of Virginia.

Lacrosse Championship 
In Three-Way Scramble 

With Maryland's close 8-9 loss against 
Navy the race foi 'he national champion' 
ship in lacrosse becomes more complii ited 
than ever. Prior to the defeat by Navy, 
Maryland and Army were the only unde- 
feated teams in the country and it began 
to look like straight sailing foi the cham 
pionship. However, while Navy was beat 
ing Maryland, Johns Hopkins came hack 
into the picture by. defeating Princeton, 
thus m. iking it a three-way race from now 
on. All three of these teams at this wait 
ing have lost one game, the Midshipmen 
beating Johns Hopkins 7-4 bul losing to 
Princeton 6-7, a team which the OKI 
Liners defeated, 8-5. 

First Since 1938 

Navy's defeat of the Old Liners was the 
first since 19sS when the Sailor Lads made 
it 8-7 to belt Maryland for the crown that 
season. In all Navy has had only two vic- 
tories and a tie with Mai viand in 12 games 
that followed a 4-2 Middy victory in 1929. 
There had been a two-year lapse in their 
long series, Maryland winning the last 
contest in PHD by 12-3. 

The: OKI Liners have a fine aggregation 
in this year's lacrosse team and all credit 
is due them in spile of the defeat at the 
hands of the Midshipmen. They have 
shown great power in defeating such teams 
as Drexel, Rutgers, Princeton, Penn State 
and Loyola, and if they defeat their last 
two opponents, which will be two of the 
hardest they have faced, they will be verj 
much in the running when it comes time- 
to divide national honors. Teams yet to be 
played this season arc Army at West 
Point on May 12 and Johns Hopkins at 
College Park on May 22. At this writing 
Army had not been defeated and Johns 
Hopkins had only been beaten once by 

Duke Game Forfeited 

The Duke game, which had been sched- 
uled for April 1°, was forfeited because of 
a blinding rainstorm that kept College Park 
covered u ith water most of the day. 

It is hoped that several meets can be ar- 
ranged with service track teams for the 
latter part of May. Sometime during the 
month a sextet of Maryland runners arc 
scheduled to go to Central High School 
in Washington to pace the great Crcg Rice 
in the two mile.

Dr. Samuel G. Davis, '93 

(Continued from page >) 
Harford Countian 

Born in Harford County*, Dr. Davis 
studied in private schools and al the Vir- 
ginia Military Institute before matriculat- 
M the t niversity. 

Ik' associated himseli early in lift ; ' 
Pi. 1. R, Trimbell, who then was Chief 
Surgeon for the Baltimore and Ohio Rail 
r oad, Dr. Dim's specializing in giving anes 
rhetics from the beginning of liis piofcs- 
tional career. 

Coming from the same Harford County 
background .is the Lie Dr. ). M. T. I'm 
ney, he had many of the same habits of 
mind and much the same considerate man- 
ner in dealing with patients. The two men 
were closely assex iated. 

Dr. Davis did not like ceremony and a 
■ tor> illustrating is told F\ Ins friends. 
in 1934 the Virginia Military Institute 
wanted to honor him with the Degree of 
Master of Science. His Alma Mater invited 
him to attend public ceremonies, hut with 
characteristic modesty Dr. Divis declined 
to attend. He suggested that the degree 
be sent to him. 'that was finally done and 
the Doctor wis gratified. 

Early in his career Dr. Davis joined the 
Fifth Regiment of the Maryland National 
Guard. He saw service in the Spanish-Amer- 
ican War, with the rank of Captain and 
Assistant Surgeon, and was one of the few 
men in the command who escaped the 
typhoid fever of the Southern camps and 
eamc back to Baltimore on his feet. 

He was still in the command, with the 
r;mk of Major and Chief Surgeon, at the 
time of the Mexican Border trouble in 
1916. When he finally left the Regiment, 
lie had spent 26 years in the service. 

Hanging in the Church Home and In- 
firmary in Baltimore is a portrait of Dr. 
Guy L. Hunner, Dr. Thomas L. Cullen. 
and Dr. Davis, who were known as "the 
three musketeers" by the hospital staff. 
The portrait is by a Mrs. I. Hunner Par- 
sons, Dr. Hunners' daughter.

tensively by training camps all over this 
Country, and a version of it is being used in 
Canadian training camps. 


Gen. Russell P. Hartle, '10 
Stands Out In Conflict 

In a newspaper clipping which came to 
the Alumni Office from Malonc, New 
York, wc discovered an interesting account 
of General Russcl P. Hartle, who grad- 
uated from the University in 1910. Wc 
quote from the article — 

"When American soldiers crash into 
Hitler's Europe, the man believed likeliest 
to lead them is Major General Russcl P. 
Hartle, beak-nosed, firm chinned, 200- 
pound commander of U. S. troops in the 
field, European theater. Quieth but firmly, 
with thin chin set, Hartle today is in Eng- 
land, training his men for the invasion day. 
Here are highlights of his career: born at 
Cliewsvillc, Mel.. 53 years ago, Hartle at- 
tended the University of Maryland, won 
and liked the nickname 'Scrappy' for his 
fighting nature, graduated in 1910. Enter- 
ing Army Infantry as a Lieutenant, he 
went to Manilla for two years, returned in 
1912 to serve in U. S. camps and border 

"A machine-gun expert, Hartle trained 
troops in World War I, then studied at 
Infantry and Naval School, and taught 
cadet officers. In 1937 he headed the op- 
eration section of the War Flans Division, 
then commanded the Puerto Rico Mobile 
Force and U. S. Infantry Divisions in Mis 
souri and Louisiana. 

"He led the fust U. S. troops to Ireland 
in 1942, set up bases, trained the rough 
Rangers who helped raid Dieppe and 
fought on to Algiers' beaches in North 
Africa. Hartle is a 'soldier's soldier' — 
determined fighter, he hates to lose. He 
calls the war a 'crusade- for living,' pro n 
iscs to earn- the fight to the enemy."

the p isscssion of thai intangible 

called 'school spirit' by students, faculty 

and alumni. President Byrd ; 1 us 

far along the load toward the attainment 

of the goals of the- fust two essentials. The 
acquisition of an adequate 'school spirit* 
is a much mine difficult goal to attain. It 
cannot he bought and it takes years to de- 
velop and mature. A loyal and energetic 
body of alumni can be a tremendous ! 
to a school. Such a group can best be de- 
veloped at the source, on the college cam- 
pus by the acquisition of 'school spirit' by 
the students, and future alumni. Sigma 
Circle of O. D. K. has always striven to 
foster and augment 'school spirit' on this 
campus. Professor Eichlin has consciously 
and unconsciously aided this movement; it 
was one of the tilings closest to his heart. 

"Fortunate, indeed, is the school which 
possesses many teachers of Professor Eich- 
lin's caliber. His memory lives in the minds 
and hearts of hundreds, perhaps thousands, 
of Maryland alumni. May this memorial 
serve to inspire untold thousands of future 
Maryland students. It is also hoped that it 
will only be the first of such memorabilia 
to aid in building on this campus an in- 
spirational atmosphere and worthy tradi- 
tions which cannot fail to foster the de- 
velopment of greater 'school spirit.' 

"Plans for the display of this memorial 
have not yet been completed. It is the de- 
sire and hope of many that, after the war, 
when a Student Union building is elected 
on our campus, this memorial will be per- 
manently placed therein. It has also been 
suggested thai a dormitory or other build- 
ing be named Eichlin Hall and this me- 
morial he there displayed Foi the present, 
at least, it will probably be displayed with 
a collection of physics hooks, the nucleus 
of which will he formed by Profcssoi Eich 
lin's own books, donated by Mrs Eichlin. 
The faculty in the Engineering Building 
feels the urgent need of a reading ami tef- 
cicnce loom foi physics, mathematics and 
engineering hooks ami periodicals. Such a 
room would provide an excellent place for 
this memorial."
